I will be making my way to the "T" next week for a new fishing experience. I will be fly fishing of course, I mostly fish salmon and steelhead and am pretty new to the trout game. Any go to flies for this river? I hope to fish both wet and dry flies. Also wondering where a good starting point might be seeing as it is a huge river? I was wondering about goldpan park area?? thanks guys!

I nymph big stones either with or without an indicator...move around and when you find them it's a blast...I've alsos swung minnow patterns, found the larger ones worked best for me...In the evening or if I see a hatch happening...look to see what they are after...It can vary, the calliblond is some fav's on here, also sedge patterns etc. Bring big and small...nothing worse then being in the middle of a huge caddis hatch and only having big drys on you...You will get the odd hit..but damn, do you miss out!!!

Go big with Kaufman Stone or Stimulator. I tie my stones for the Tom in size 6 1x long and my Stimulators size 4 2x long. Yes that is big but so are the bows that come out for the stone hatch. I have to order my #4 2x long dry fly hooks from back east because local suppliers don't stock them.

I have sold lots of my patterns to many travelers who wander into The Bighorn Trading Post, looking to buy flies that work. I love the looks I get when I show them those big Stimulators. I always tell them go use it, if it doesn't work bring it back and I will refund your money. Never had to make a refund yet.

As for the fish! There is a reason that the first time slot I book for my annual vacation is the first two weeks of August for the Stonefly hatch on the Tom. I don't tell how many I bring to hand or how large they are but I will say most are push over 20 inches.

Other flies that work well are Grasshopers #6, red bodied Tom Thumd #6, Irresistible #8, Chernobyl Ant #6.
