Excuse my ignorance. I had great luck last spring Steelhead fishing on the fly, and there is nothing better... I tied my own flies which consisted of various nymphs, sucker spawns, and egg patterns. I did not use many streamer type flies, and when I did, was very VERY unsucessful. SO I ask, can the above mentioned patterns, and other patterns like them be used EFFECTIVELY in fall, or are they mostly spring patterns? I am currently focusing on various streamers, clouser, whoolies etc. and know these are valuable fall fare.? Also, does anybody else tie maggot balls? These have proved deadly. Thank you for any answers or input.
