Looks good to me. Caught a nice bow on the upper kenai in sept with a very similar offering. 99% of the fishing in fall on the upper seems to be using beads. Honestly, I don't enjoy fishing beads and was determined to catch a bow on a fly. I would consider some ginger/red leech pattern if I were you. Perhaps a flesh/black. Something about contrasting colors seems to work for me. Could be the imagination, but seems to produce more fish for me.
The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.
I meant the end of JULY
thanks man i need to head to sports mans and pick up some more zonkers.
no all you need is beads, and flesh flies, the more color the better, they wont chase cream or white as much right now. esl's will work too along with the varient you tied. But would focus on beads and flesh flies. If you really want to get crazy you can bring some drys, I saw a bunch rise last weekend when I was there.
what type of dries would you tie?? thanks man
whats size would you tie as far a dry flies goes, and what color for the glo bugs?
yeah pretty much what he said............an old dirty sock huh? Interesting....well maybe add a grizzly or ginger color flesh pattern too.
Tie some is sizes 10-18. That should be fine.
Alaska: We're all here cuz we're not all "there"
Try a set of led eyes or conehead to get that bugger down deep. The kenai has some deep spots that run fast.
Raptor is right on with the dries. The bead bite maybe a little early in late july, on the upper at least. Go where the kings are and throw larger beads at large trout until the reds start fornicatin'.
Dont forget the nymphs in July on the upper.
ive tied close to a hundred flies in the pasts week or so.... now i need to fish them, its going to be a good learning experience hopefully ill be landing a few hogs
