Flies for Stream Fishing
Small flies of modest colors are best, such as the coachman, cowdung, Cahill, Beaverkill, and other gray and brown winged flies, and also the various hackles. The smallest sizes should be used, tens and twelves’, and even at times the midge flies. More than two flies should never be used, and one is better. As a matter of fact it is seldom that more than one fly can be laid on the water and fished properly, owing to the difficulty of casting and the smallness of the stream, and two flies, also, are just twice as apt to get fouled as one. If two are used they should be attached to the leader quite close together so that both may be fished at the same time in the smallest pools.
