Re: Stocked trout
Bomb proof rig for stockies - 7.5 foot tapered leader to 6X. Tie on a San Juan Worm, red or pink. Place a tiny split shot about 10 inches above the san juan. From the bend of the san juan tie on 1 foot of 6X tippet. Tie a # 14 or 16 hares ear nymph onto that. Buy some Thingamabobber brand strike indicators and attach about 20 inches from your fly line give or take depending on water depth. Stand perpendicular on the side of a decent hole. Cast to the top, mend your line, or better yet high stick keeping all of your fly line above the water surface to ensure drag free drift. Set the hook at any delay, pause or sudden twitch of the thingamabobber. Let the drift go to your 3 o'clock and when it begins to curve and straighten out, give a light hook set just in case as you pull your fly out to recast (roll cast ). You'll see just how easy fly fishing can really be.
