Whenever Brian created this...lots of years ago, it has worked from then through now. It is the #1 trout getter with #2 being too distant to count.

It is the only fly I have used in the sound for lots of years. Oh yea...it also get huge needle fish as well :D :lol:

Typically I've used size #2 (for 6wt action) - 1/0 (if use an 8wt)
Have kayak...will travel.

Do you choose the size based on the wt of rod not the target fish or bait fish? and you prefer bigger hook if you use heavier rod in the sound side?

I have 7wt and 9wt and plant to use 7wt for sound and 9wt for oceanfront.

Does this fly work the best at morning and evening or through the day?

Easy to tie as well. :D :D
