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.
