Jan 06 Duranglers

This is the coldest time of year, so keep in mind that trout metabolisms have slowed and they are not moving much to eat.
The formula is simple though: small nymphs fished in the deepest holes, with enough weight. Oh, and you have to basically hit the trout on the nose to get them to eat.

Patterns/Bugs:
Nymphs: Prince nymphs 14-18, Brown Baetis Nymph 18-22, Killer Mayfly Nymph 18-22. Rios Rain Drop 14-16, Rainbow Warrior 18-22.
Midges 18-22: Black Flash Midge Pupa, Disco Midge, Tavs Big Mac, CDC Midge Dry, Bunny Midge Dry, Parachute Adams in 18-24, Griffith Gnat #18-22.
