Have an upcoming trip with my son to the Salmon River in NY and looking for some pattern suggestions that you'd consider a must have for late Sept. Trip is a bit more than a month away and I'm looking to stockpile a good assortment. Will be fishing the river proper, from Altmar to the estuary. Looking for preferred patterns, color, sizes, etc.
I'm a trout guy and consider a big fly to be a size 14, so these big fish have me a bit out of my element... so any other tips that you think might be helpful, like presentation, location, hooks, dos and donts, etc. would be welcome.
