Hi Don,

You bring the yarn eggs, and I'll bring the venison. Sounds like the makings of a good day on the river to me.:)

For the spring I've done really well on latex wigglers and almost any one of a handful of black stone patterns. Half the time I think they take the latex wiggler thinking its a cased caddis larva.

Ditto TODDFATHER. Big ugly black stoneflies have always gotten it done for me in the spring. Dark collored ESL's work pretty well for me at that time too. In the fall, while salmon fishing I've had Steelies hit mostly egg flies, but I haven't spent alot of time targetting them in the fall/winter. Good luck.

I have 3 favs.

1) cherise and red glow egg, on a # 10 hook
2) orange and white glow egg, these work very well late in the spring and fall
3) red egg sucking bugger with a small black body

Hands down in the spring time it would be a Stonefly.
That's what got me into tying flys,No one sold them unless i went to cabelas to get them or pay up to $2 bucks a piece at the bait shop.i went through 7 last spring in under a hr,having them break my 6lb test on the Huron.
By Spring i'll have a fly box full of stoneflys and some.
