The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
6. Woolly Buggers
Its funny, i've been fly-fishing for over 25 years, and the Adams is my favorite to tie, and the best dry fly that I catch fish with. I've never talked to anyone else in these years about must haves. #1 on the list so far, is going to be the Adams..size 12-20. wide range of sizes, and I know there are differences in patterns. Hackle tip wing, hair wing, etc. Patterns and close sizes is what i'm looking for. Wooley Buggers and Hairs Ears might come in 2nd. Theres lots more ideas out there. We would all love to hear it. Thanks,,Jason
