HI: I'll be fishing out West for the first time from August 14 to the 23. I believe we'll be fishing the Yellowstone, Gallatin, Madison and a few of the spring creeks in Paradise Valley. I fugure that you men and women that fish these as your home waters would be able to give me some advice. I always tie too many flies for my trips and I'm trying to avoid that this time. Is it possible to narrow my choices down to say, maybe, 10 top flies including nymphs and dries. I've been told already that I should have PTs in sizes 20 and 22. I've already tied 1 1/2 doz. miracle midges in those sizes. I just don't want to go overbaord like I usually manage.
Thanks for sharing,
