Looking on what flies to bring to fish the Russian or any other wading streams in mid to late July. What are some options to take a break from Red fishing, home base is Sterling.
From some past posts, I remember people I think mentioning large nymphs size 10-14 PT, Hares ear, Copper Johns and dries like Parachute Adams & Humpies in the 10-12 range. Beads are out but what about otter eggs as they are fixed to hook?
Can I get by with my 5wt and 3x or 4x tippet? Always have just fished salmon, other than last year on Ptarmigan creek in late August with beads.
