We did go to the fly shop there, just didn't want to mention it on another fly shop's board! I used mainly the sulphur flies I bought there. There were the same size and color as the flies I managed to catch and look at. I think my drift was less than stellar. The stimulator was only used before we found a hatch. I should have had the sulphur on as a locator instead of the stimi first thing though. Oh well, I'll know better next time! Thanks for the comment!
