Matching the Hatch

PK dam

You alway’s hear big flies big fish.  That may be so for some folks but its really never applied to me (My biggest bass was caught on a #8 woolly bugger).  The last few times I’d gone striper fishing I’d thrown some moderately large to extra large flies on sinking  lines even though I rarely saw any bait fish larger than a couple of inches.  I pretty much hate fishing sinking lines in running water.  So this trip I was back to basics with a floating line and #6 clousers.


Not only was it much easier to fish it also produced a lot more fish.  Most times its just best to stick with what you know.
