Master Class Monday: When to Use Small Flies for Trout

When large trout are feeding on the surface, our first impulse is usually to put on one of those big foam attractor flies that float so well and can be seen from across the river. However, Amelia Jensen–of Jensen Fly Fishing–shows why it is sometimes a mistake to use large attractor dry flies. Many times, especially in clear trout streams, a smaller dry fly with a long leader is more effective on spooky trout. Watch how she seals the deal with a smaller, more delicate fly and a longer leader on a difficult trout that was spooked previously by her larger dry flies.
