    Productive Flies - At the moment

    Thought I'd start a thread where people could share the flies they've used recently that have proved to be productive.
    (If its not a secret)....

    I'm finding Smelt Flies particularly productive at the moment at the lake....

    Aaahhh trout fishing. I was a bit stumped by the prospect do productive flies but understand now. @Dundee seemed to use his wool and shit fly to good effect.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I are mainly into spin fishing Petros_mk but like Rushy said any shit works giving the time and effort.

    I will add some of my favourite flies when I get back, that I add to my spinning set up.

    The one I purchased was a single hook. And is looking a bit ragged now after being hit by heaps of trout and having more time in the water than I would wish on an olympic swimmer but has given me great results.

    Stu's bionic NZ mayfly nymph is working well for me as a general explorer (bottom RHS). The hot killer nymph is proving good too.
    Often the biggest mistake is too big a fly with weedeater line for a trace. Most trout have yet to experience a McDonalds drive through and prefer not to supersize.

    On the weekend it was pretty much these two that did the damage, sz12 lime X Stim dry and a small sz16 black BLT nymph. You could fish this rig as a dry and dropper right through the season and be confident that you should catch fish on it with a few tweaks in leader and dropper length.
