Best Fly For The Millers River
The water levels are down so we can put away the dreaded WB's and really start fly fishing. This is the fly to use, in various sizes, for much of the season.
Olive Emerger -
size 12 - 16 hook (dry or wet style hook)
Body - olive/brown (Evening Sun Fly Shop sells this as Australian Possum - there's some "flash" to it).
Hackle - dark brown partridge. The hackle in the photo is darker than seen here. You can use a lighter shade if you like.
How to fish it - swing this wet fly through the current (no indicators please) and let it rise up at the end of the drift. The browns have been killing it!!!!!!
See you out there!
