Re: Clinch River 6-22-06
Why do browns like dry flies better? Because their mouths are wet and the dries help absorb the water.
I'm joking. And not very well, probably.
I have no idea if they like dries or wets more. I've caught more rainbows than browns on the clinch using dries. If you're catching more browns with dries, maybe I need to fish where you are fishing. If I had my wish, 75% of the fish I would catch would be browns. Interesting question. Maybe some other board members will have an opinion on this topic.
May you fish more than you wish for.
