Default Amicolola River

Hey folks,

I live about 25 minutes from the Amicolola Hwy 53 bridge so I try to get over there about once or twice a week. I've had success in the past using simple flies like zebra midges, hares ear nymphs, and rainbow warriors. Does anyone have any advice for new flies that I can try that would have more success? I've been consistently netting 2-3 fish every time I go, but it seems like I could be more effective and I'm wondering if my fly selection is off.

If I had to pick one fly to fish the Ami it would be a olive size 12 woolly bugger. Only question is do they want it drifted or stripped.
Also had lots of luck with a Blue Assassin. Put them together and hang on.
