    Default What flies to tie???

    I am heading to the swan lake swanson river for a canoe trip in a couple of weeks and I need to start tying some flies for the event. Has anyone fished the area before? What flies did you find successful?

    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Ditto what ak_powder_monkey listed, especially the leeches. Also, bunny bugs in black, smaller gummy minnows, muddlers, and sculpins w/ eyes. Then there's the deer-hair rat/mouse/shrew that swims on the surface late at night, that's suppose to be a real kick, but i can't speak from experience on that one.
