He makes it look easy. For me, it generally ends with the deer hair in the rubbish bin.

Good fly in the smaller sizes, especially with rainbows.

Yes, many years ago I used to fish mainly small flies, but someone told me on a particular high country stream to go bigger with the Humpies, I did and they scoffed them down, so of course since then I've continued with the bigger ones, and yes, when on rainbows, big can be good often as you say Brian
