Fall is (imo) the very best time of year to be on the water. It seems that it doesn't really matter what fresh water species you fish for or whether you taget cold or warm water fish, fall is the time to do it. The temps start to drop a little bit (finally this week ) and fishing becomes much more comfortable to the angler. The change of seasons seems to trigger something in beast and man alike that makes us all a little more excitable. The color scheme changes, the insect hatches change, and feeding habits change. Many of the anglers who spent the summer months crowded together, jostling for a position to fish wander out of the water and into the trees to pursue other outdoor endeavors :! !$. This is my favorite time of year to chase my favorite fishy friends and I have a few favorite flies I tend to use. My question is: What are your favorite fall flies in Ohio. I tend to think BIG patterns in the fall. The Browns are spawning and are usually more terratorial to other fish, the bass seem to take larger flies in preperation for the cold, lethargic months. I can't really talk of the Chrome because I've never tried it, but patterns seem to vary widely for the Eerie tribs. My favorite fall patterns are (for trout)hoppers, big buggers and bunny strips zonkers, and big fat wooly worms. For warm water fish, poppers and the same big streamers with some large craw-patterns. How 'bout you?
