    I haven't been high lake fishing for a while but sure hope to this year. I've got a new ultra-light float tube to try out. For dries I'm partial to Elk Hair Caddis and Parachute Adams, tho I could substitute a Stimulator for either of those. Seems like my number one, all around exploratory wet fly is a woolly bugger, followed by a small partridge and orange - or green, then a damsel nymph.

    Yeah, no force feeding there. ;). It did come out of the water when it assaulted that hopper.

    True story, was at a lake near Estes park CO (I forget the name) but as I was standing foot deep in the water my fly was dangling right over the water over a weed bed as I was doing something else (I forgot what - getting a stogie or something) and out comes a frigging green back cutty and takes my bug and it's hooked. I was startled because I wasn't paying any attention and certainly wasn't expecting action since my rod was in my armpit As I was grabbing something. I hadn't made a cast or anything my line was barely out. Crazy little fish. It seems the little ones are the most daring. :)

    Old flies that work just as well as they ever did to catch fish (but not as well as they once did, to catch flyfishers' wallets).

    That's why few of the little ones survive to be 'big ones'...they're doofus fish.

    I run some soft hackles on slow meandering mountain streams. I carry a GRHE and Pheasant Tail Flymphs, and Partridge and Orange and Partridge and Yellow wet flies. They all do real well.

    If I could add a sixth, it would be an ant pattern as I had great success with it last Summer.

    It seems everyone likes the general patterns. Everyone knows small stream trout are like garbage disposals, and any of those trout would eat a grape if it had a dead drift.

    Why make the solution harder than it is?

    Sounds intriguing. Mind posting a picture of your version of this pattern? There are several variations online.
