Can't go wrong with a leech buddy. :thumbup: Whenever I'm fishing a new body of water, I tend to start with one. Unless of course I see a large amount of insects coming of the water at the boat launch. As far as colour goes... depends on the lake, but always have a good selection of black, maroon, and olive in sizes 12 through 6. You can always catch a few fish on a leech in any lake on any given day. ;) My :2cents:

Tight Lines, Nates

Couldn't agree more! Always start off with a leech, usually a black one. And to be honest I usually stay with it. My buddy has been using the same little marroon leech, all battered and frayed, but it works! That's probably my most used go-to fly. But after this year, it may be something in an olive color, maybe a dragon fly nymph. This is all while trolling of course!

Micro-leech, maroon is usually my first choice, with a gold bead head. Never seems to fail me.

It all depends on what hatches are active, above and under the waters surface, and along the shorelines. Some trips it can be a different fly every time to start off a day. If nothing seems to be working, I find if you keep moving (not trolling ::) ;)) and keep switching up your offerings you will eventually hit fish. Also by knowing some basic entimology time tables of an area, should give you an idea what fly to use durring those low activity times on the waters surface.

Finder ;)

When going to a new lake I will always start off trolling and learning the lake. Finding all the good spots. I use two rods. One will have a gold bead headed red & black micro leech, and the other will either be a shrimp pattern ( for any lakes full of shrimp ) or a red carey if not.

Once I find the spots I want to fish I will match the hatch and fish my indicator on one line and cast and retrieve another.
