These bugs are pretty much anywhere there are spruce trees in the parts of Montana I've been fishing lately, and the fish are interested. Size varied between #10-12 but the bigger fly was easier to see and floated better; your choice.
Playing around with the "tungsten" setting on the camera so everything has a bit of a bluish cast to it; don't think I'll do it again.
