The amflyfishing Team

    As I stood on the bank and looked into my fly box, started thinking about all the elements in choosing the perfect fly ... water conditions, staging, available forge, and what the gills are eating right now.  Then I realized that "ninety percent of what a gill eats is brown or black, fuzzy, and about five-eights of an inch long".

Can't draw a strike or the bite turns-off ... a subtle change can have a huge impact on your fishing productivity.  Here's a few options to consider - changing the fly (size, color, weighted / un-weighted, pattern), the retrieve (speed, pattern) or the tippet (length, diameter, monofilament / fluorocarbon).

A straight forward tie ... this patterns has been productive on steelhead to trout to panfish.  A must fly for your fly box.
        Line & Lure Conditioner is the reel deal ...
Since the spring of 2012, I have been using Line & Lure on my fly lines, leaders, tippets, dry flies and bass bugs … and its performance has been “two thumbs-up”.  Cleaning and coating my fly line with this conditioner reduces line-to-guide friction and repels debris which increases line control (improved casting accuracy, line speed and distance) and better line floatability (easier line mending and pick-up, improved fly presentation).  On leaders and tippets, they float higher and cleaner.  Dressing my dry flies and bass bugs with Line & Lure has proven to be a major plus … they ride higher and longer than other dressings that I have used in the past.  Therefore, I have spend less time drying / re-dressing my fly and more time fishing.  Yes, it’s like adding “power steering” for your fishing.  Also, using Line & Lure on your sunglasses adds a scratch resistant and dust repelling coating … along with, reduce glare and minimizes water spotting.
