WHAT TO USE, WHEN TO USE IT

Outdoor Life - - FISHING -

For work­ing hatch­ery holdovers, Mark Swann fa­vors small in-line spin­ners like Joe’s Flies and Pan­ther Martins, Swedish Pim­ples, and small float­ing Ra­palas. Swann will also use a Woolly Bug­ger or some other at­trac­tor fly un­der a split shot just heavy enough to get it down to the fish.

“I’ll even use a cou­ple of red or char­treuse plas­tic beads on a hook with enough weight to get it down deep. You need to get it in front of their face,” he says. “Keep try­ing dif­fer­ent things un­til you fig­ure out what works.”
