    Default Flies for the Michigan Fish-In?

    I saw Jack's post on the "Usual" (nice tie by the way Jack) and rather than highjack that thread I thought I'd start a new one on recommended ties for the Michigan Fish-In in June. Since I'll be coming from several hundred miles south of Grayling and have no experience with fishing in this area what would you all suggest as must have flies for this Fish-In?

    I've checked out the Gates Lodge Hatch Chart but I'd be interested in your thoughts and recommendations on suggested patterns.

    Thank,
    Joe Bertolini

    Joe;
    Blue Winged Olives size 18 to 22. Tricos in the same size. 14 & 16 Adams. Usual's 16 - 20. Dust Bunnies 12 & 14 and Mattress Thrashers rigged with a dropper.
    Hopefully it's a bit cooler this year and the water temps are down.

    Also try:
    Light Cahill nymphs in size 16, Isonychia bicolor in size 14 and maybe 12 (duns and nymphs), Mahogany Duns in sizes 16 and 18, Black Ants and Orange Ants in various sizes down to tiny, wet skunks and dry skunks, parachute patriots down to size 18, Black Caddis in size 18. The capitalized patterns represent actual insects. The others are attractors.

    Speaking of the Mich. Fish-In, does anyone know what a non-resident all species lic. will cost this year? There was a rumor last year where they would be rather pricey this year.

    Fly fishing and fly tying are two things that I do, and when I am doing them, they are the only 2 things I think about. They clear my mind.

    Brad,

    I am pretty sure the 2014 all species non-resident Michigan licence is going to $76.00.
