One Fly to use all season

Post by fishamidge » Sat Mar 20, 2010 11:03 am

If you only had one fly to use all season what would it be? It could be any size of that fly.Just one fly. I would go with a Emerger Gray body, Med.Dun CDC wing,Z-lon tail on emerger hook.You could fish on bottom, swing as wet,float in film,and fish on top.It might just work!!!! A friend of mine uses just one fly does very well with it.

Like to hear what people think. :D

I can see that but it would take the fun out of things. Also what would we do with the $$$$ invested in materials.

narcdog, I see what you say about taking fun out of it, just want to see what people would use? You can still use your materials to tie just can't use flies for one season. Ted Patlen will go with a (Scarlet Ibes) I think would be a good bet onTed's pick for a fly.

Easy call. CDC & Elk, tied with a brownish dun CDC feather and natural deer hair; sizes 16 and 18.

I'll be different - again :oops: - and pick a streamer - assuming I can have that one fly in different sizes :? , if not still the same pick... it would either be a Muddler Minnow or my little Black Leech... :o
