    Match the hatch. Bunny flies are good. I usually go with flies that look like eggs or have the same color.

    As said above.I've also had strikes with chartruese flashers, fake orange egg looking flies, and pink contraption made by the local Eagle river tackle shop that they called a "coho fly". Basicly a #4 gamakatsu octopus hook with a shot weight on the head with a couple pink feathers and red beads.

    Don't be surprised if you catch a big trout with some of these flies

    PINK! That's pretty much it.. Purple esl, marabou flys, wooly buggers, anything pink works great. Popper wogs, Bombers, flash flys, bunny flys and some dumbbell head hot pink bunny flys!

    Tie a bunch of pink clousers while you're at it, with large dumbell eyes on top so the fly can scrape bottom without snagging too much. I catch a few on the ESL too, plus the odd dolly now and then. For the estuaries and clear pools I like a #6 red flash fly sparsely tied.

    When I started flyfishing for salmon, I was given a dozen "purple back biter flies". Which was a jointed fly with the hook as the rear section. I wish I could get more of that style today. No hang-ups, and caught fish. Looked like a jointed jig w/light purple malibou.

    The main thing is find a fly patern that catches your eye, and meets any hook restrictions in the waters you fish -- AND GO HAVE FUN!

    You will catch fish.

    Just got DRIFT_016 's photo to open- that is the fly I used. Just has a different name. Purple egg-sucking leech.

    Thanks- DRIFT!
