Many mayflies that hatch as light green or olive duns turn into spinners of the same general shades. Trout can be very picky when feeding on spinners. Especially when feeding in scum lines in slow back-eddies, trout normally find that one type of food is preferable to all others. It is always best to spend a lot of time observing your quarry before making that crucial first cast. Then you must be very precise in your fly placement in front of the fish. Putting your fly exactly in the center of...

Extremely thin tippets are the rule. 7X isn't out of the question. Very lightweight rods are often used to land large trout. Down-stream drag-free presentations are the rule.
