early on while fishing the lakes, march brown / dark montreal hands down the most productive fly i've ever used, great till mid / late june.

i soak mine in floatent with a 2-3 lb tippet, and pull it fast, you want to see "v" s comming from the front of the fly , making it's own waves

now you got me all worked up and teary eyed thinking about it .

I have great success with Hellgramite patterns in early April, especially Reg Baird's hellgramite pattern. Along with that I would say that the Mickey Finn, conehead wooly's & conehead muddlers as well as the Dark Montreal have been my favorites for that time of year. I did have a great afternoon fishing some fast water in April a few years ago with a Grizzly King, but have not had any success worth mentioning with it since.
