    Talking about dries

    Hey guys...I was wondering: what size do you use more usually, when you go on dry flies? I mean not the big foam monsters, but the classic mayfly, caddis, imitations.

    Jumping out of the water?=caddis.
    Just an EHK matching the size and color of the naturals. Walk the fly on the surface.
    I know the situation and this worked OK.
    Good luck.
