Best 2014 Best Stillwater Dry Fly Patterns Stimulator Orange
By far our most productive dry fly has been the orange stimulator again this year. Possibly because this is our go to fly, first out of the box with a team of buzzers suspended below however this is frequently a successful pattern. With orange in its body we have seen trout hit these and try to sink them or simply hammer the Stimulator. Whatever it is about this fly Rainbows and Brownies do seem to hit it hard and when it is not hit it is a superb bite indicator. Sedgehogs pulled through surface waves have been successful for us.
Natural dry flies that imitate real flies are Blue Winged Olive and IOTBB which is a great midge imitation. These have really worked well when there has been a hatch.
Even though snails are more prolific in September and October small foam snails have worked through the year.
