Not sure where you are going fishing. I'm headed out this weekend to hit a few lakesw in the Oliver area. I plan on taking leeches, boatmen, scuds and chironomids. Might try some small adams or tom thumbs if there is any surface activity. Are you stream or still water fishing?

The boatmen lay their eggs this time of year. Watch for the telltale "raindrops" on the surface of the lake and be prepared for some aggressive takes.

I would recomend a "carry special" wet fly. It has caught me more trout than any other fly to date.
Good luck mate.

A size 12-8 bead head pheasant tail nymph has to be my all time favorite wet fly, with the black micro leech giving it some serious competition for the title of World's Greatest Wet Fly. Top dry fly would be a size 16-8 tom thumb, with the adams (traditional and parachute) and the mosquito bringing up second and third respectively. 8)

Yes a red or green "Carey Special" works good but I tend to lean toward the red one.
Here is one of the many many trout caught on a red carey special at Buntzen Lake 06
