    sulphur patterns...

    if none of that works may want to try a #14 dog hair caddis.

    remember to pick up some trash if you're by the church.

    good luck!

    Default Gary LaFontaine CDC emergers

    Half and Half Sulphur emerger

    Tie a regular #16 PTN using only 6x tippet material as a rib. Tie it only half up the body
    Then dub in lightly,sulphur colored dubbing.......I like the brand Superfine.
    Add a clump of gray CDC to float the thing and finish off the head. Thread is orange/sulphur. This is the most deadly time for the insect. Crawling out of the shuck, trying to get dried off, and up from the depths come Mr. Bow!

    Next time your on the Clinch, watch the fish rise and you will see a little swish, not a splashy rise. They are taking emergersl.

    I am a great admirer of spectator sports, especially on television; it keeps the riffraff off the trout streams.
