I will be shore fishing at Valdez and Hope in late July and am seeking input on the best lures to use. Searching this forum I see lots of references to egg and leech pattern flys. Since I don't fly fish, can I fish these flys on a light spinning outfit by using a float? Any particular pattern you find best and what are the recommended colors. Should they be fished near the surface or near the bottom?
Thanks for your help.
