Best Winter Flies
What would be the best flies for me to use besides prince, pheasant tail, and hare's ear to get me through the winter?

Midge patterns...and any stonefly patterns...

I usually like to have some small #18-20 para BWO and para adams dries. Fishing some of those long flat sunlight pools in the park during the winter can be fun.

THE BEST WINTER FLIES- the ones tied in front of a very warm fire during those winter evenings. The flies that will fill out the empty sections of a fly box that bring visions and promise of the pools to be fished in the spring. (Too much ice fishing during my youth in Michigan!!)

That said, I might be the idiot tossing a stonefly nymph between the "Y" and Metcalf's this weekend in the rain and snow with frozen toes.(:>)

Jim Teeny Fly Pattern
In winter when nothing seems to move a fish I like to show them something very different.

A Teeny Nymph in black, brown, ginger, or antique gold on a down and across swing.

The second pattern I would use would be the Teeny Egg-Sucking Leech in black with an orange egg. I used this pattern after a long day on a PA stream when nothing moved a fish. Second drift... Fish ON! It remained like that till I left the stream.
