As the weather cools I want to target rainbows with the flyrod, and having never done it, I'm all ears, any tips from water temp, flies, time of day, anything.

Thanks
Greg

Aaron, thanks for the reply

Hi Greg;

I haven't fished 'bows for many years, but, FWIW, anglers around the Great Lakes used to favour something called a "Michigan Wiggler", in different colours. This fly sort of looks like a "Woolly Worm" that lost its tail. So you might try a Woolly Worm, with or without its tail. To which I would add the old maxim that 90% of what a trout eats is brown, fuzzy, and less than an inch long.


But what do I know?

cheers,

chuck
