How far up?

Those far North trout dont get too selective, a Delaware Adams, Bivisible and the Quack are good.

I heard the Pink Lady is killer on the private water in Debruce, but of course I have never tried one there. ;) CJ

McClane's favorite was a #12 Adams. Mine, for the years I was in the Debruce Club, was a 16 Dun Variant with dubbed olive body.
