I'm gonna hike in Hickory Creek Trail, go downstream
and camp/fly fish for about three days. When I've
fished there before in October, I've had few takes on
dries or nymphs except right after rains stained the
river a bit, at which times I've taken a number of bows
and browns on woolly worms. Doesn't say much for my
stealth or technique, I suppose.
Any tips for a relative novice? How heavy a tippet
can I get away with? I'm going in well armed with
muddlers, hoppers, ants, beetles, adams parachutes and
elk hair caddis (what size? hmmm). What else should I
offer to leave hanging in the mountain laurel?
Any input is greatly appreciated.
