    You probably need to check to see what is hatching in your area at certain times of the year, but I have had good luck with:

    Emergers

                I copied a wet fly pattern from Outdoor Life in the late 60's called the "Devil Bug". ( I have since lost the pattern but would like to hear from any one that has it) and this fly was remarlable in the waters of western North Carolina. When nothing else-even bait would not work-this one did. Jim
