I added some nymphs for fishing under your larger dry flies. This combination can be deadly. Parachute flies are fished dry but the sit lower in the surface film, imitating emergers. The white post or parachute allows you to see them better. The CDC emerger may be fished in the surface film or swung over rising fish. These are my picks to cover most situations you will encounter this summer. Just remember to hesitate before striking, especially in slow water. Foam lines are fish magnets and you should always watch for the gentle rises in them. Tight Lines…
