This time of year I think it would be best to fish trout with a nymph, which are easy to tie (check our pattern data base for a pattern)

Like OSD said try tying some nymphs ie. a simple pheasant tail size 12 or 14. Maybe try a gold ribbed hares ear in the same sizes. If you are going to be fishing some tail water in Mo. or Ark. try tying some midge larval patterns...they are really simple but small sz 18-22. Also tie some simple Pheasant tails down to 16-18. Don't be intimidated by the little hooks; try using 8/0 thread and just less materials. Scuds are another simple patterns and are a key forage in most tailwaters. Soft hackle wets are fairly simple ties and are effective just about any where. As for dries, check the hatches in the streams you intend to fish and then try your hand at the patterns you'll be likely to use. Also try some parachute Adams drys as your confidence builds. The Adams in its various forms catches trout wherever it travels to. Just some thoughts. Good luck and don't get discouraged...there are many trout fanatics here to help you! biggrin.gif

it can?

 

I'd stock up on pt's he's and para adams. all easy ties.

I'd want a few zug bugs and princes and zebra midges.

some caddis dries to justincase.

 

I'd want them all small. except maybe the zugs and princes.

 

 

all that's pretty easy.

 

then you can get started for summer bugs.

First thing i would do is see if there is a fly tying class being offered close by. Usually these are taught by local experts and not only will you learn about tying different flies you will be able to get info. about the fishing and where to go. Another thing i would do is visit your local fly shops or sport shops and pick their brains. Good luck! biggrin.gif

CADDIS LARVAE they are supper easy to tie and most streams have them. I like olive, tan , brown and bright green. Just taper some dubbing on a hook with brown or black head. You can add a bead and a rib if you like. sizes 18-14

Also, wooly buggers are easy to tie- solid black, solid white, olive body with black tail. Very effective for just about anything in fresh water. I tie a variation of the Adams. Call it the Simple Simon since it's simple to tie. Basically an Adams without wings. Consists of tail with a few deer hair or a few sprigs of dark bird feather; dubbed body of your choice of color- I use tan; ginger or grizzly hackle of two or three turns. I don't think that the wings matter that much in a current. I have caught trout on several rivers and streams with it. Welcome to the world of flyfishing! biggrin.gif
