Hopefully get a chance to come out again in early to mid October. Just wandering what dry/dropper combo is the favorite of you guys on the forum. Also, what might be your favorite double nymph rig you guys would suggest tossing in the deeper runs that time of year. Thanks for the info guys. Can't wait for our next trip. Flyguys

I think everyone knows what mine is, but depending on how fall is progressing it may be orange neversink by that time.

I usually go with a Yellow Never-Sink and a BH Pheasant. Lately I've been seeing a lot of posts with pictures of green winnies/barbie bugs hanging out of the trouts lip, so I'm starting to rethink my trusty BH Pheasant.

I like a #14 snow shoe Sally with a # 16 copper John. I was up on Cosby creek last week and caught over thirty in less than two hours. Most were on the copper john but ten or so were on the Sally

Hopper and a black ant:smile: My favorite 2 fly rig is a San Juan worm and a egg dropper:biggrin: Better know as spaghetti and meat balls:smile: It really is a killer most everywhere.

A great (and beautiful) fly is a regular blue wing olive but's next to impossible to see, particularly for older eyes. However, if you drop it behind a parachute BWO, you can follow it's progress. I tried this out last fall and every hit I got was on the regular BWO.
