Must Have Nymph Flies,
November 24, 2013
By: FarandFine
from Alexandria, VA
"Nymphs are must have flies that imitate sub-surface food sources that comprise the majority of a trout’s diet. These flies have been consistently productive for me on everything from stocked rainbows and browns, to wild brookies on urban and park streams throughout Virginia. Always in my fly box."

Get them everytime,
November 28, 2012
By: jct133
from Pawlet, VT
"This classic fly is a great fall-back fly, when nothing else works you better put one on. Flashback is a good way to get their attention fast. Keep a half dozen with you at all times and you'll be set for a long time."

go to spring creek fly,
June 25, 2012
By: phin
from Montana
"This is our "go to" fly for the LIvingston Spring Creeks here at Hubbard's Yellowstone Lodge. We often fish a size small. Works great for PMDs, Baetis, and Sulphurs. We usually use the flashback version in 18 and 20. But the larger sizes get lot of use in Lamar Valley for the Grey Drake hatch."

deadly,
April 27, 2012
By: tookie
from Downingtown Pa
"My last three trips I have only used this fly in flashback and it was deadly. Did not even consider changing fly's. After the three trips two of the flys were distroyed by the fish and had to be retired. A must have fly in # 14 and #16."

"No one should leave home without one of these. I like the flashback personally but the regular is also deadly. A must have for every fly fisherman's box."
