Swinging flies for trout?

What is everyone swinging for trout? I am in the first stages of building up my fly box for swinging and am in need of inspiration. So far I have a ton of different wooly buggers, egg sucking leaches, soft hackles and a few micro intruders.

So many options ....

... but for swinging for stockers in the wilds of Massachusetts a simple black cone head rabbit strip fly works wonders!

Nick P's (Black Francis) Woody Buggers are my favorite. Bead on the front for style and enough extra looks with the collar to feel speyish.

Trout patterns

Intruder patterns like this one have done me well.

Love that one TallPine.

50% of my married wings end in divorce.

Grabbed this black cone head bunny leach so hard I initially thought she was larger.

One 4116/Scandi 270 with 10' type 6 tip and 3' 3X Flouro

Tube flies do the trick, among most any other fly, I tend to swing traditional salmon flies the most.

I swing buggers of different colors. I have swung some nymphs, pats rubber legs and a few soft hackles.

I'm really looking forward to swinging some soft hackles in 2015.

Streamers...




Traditional wets...





Also, check out the thread I started a few days ago. Lots of great ideas there!

Working on some bunny and marabou sculpin kind of flies lately. You can't go wrong with bunny and 'bou!! I'll post some up shortly.

Tallpine, that mini intruder is great, by the way!

Everyone, keep them coming!!

I was up at Lee's Ferry in AZ last weekend. It was night and day with the Simi Seal Leech in green with a bead head. Tried dries and soft hackles, but the simi saved the day. The year prior a black bunny leech with cone head was the ticket.

Though I've mostly been partial to streamers, I am eager to find some spots where a traditional wet or soft hackle will produce.
