Whats your favorite trout flies to swing?

I'm curious what every bodies favorite flies are to swing for trout. I like the classic traditional stuff. If you have pictures I would like to see those as well.

To be honest I'm just swinging little coachmans and small soft hackle flies for our local trout.

I've had decent success with Alexandria's, from size 2-10 in the summer.

In the spring I swing a lot of zuddlers in the 2/0- 6 range

I like to swing anything from tradtional wets to soft hackles or just some made up randoms that get thrown togeather at the vise.
I would say a simple soft hackle is what ussually catches the most swung trout for me but its fun to tie some other stuff to fish as well!

When I fish for trout they are hopefully pretty big and have came from the tidewater with the salmon. Because of that I use larger flies; my usuals are Adr's Nine Three and the Jock O'Dee. Saturday I caught a beauty on a Max Canyon on a 2/0 hook so size does matter.

The Jock O' Dee;



Ard's Nine Three;



Saturday's Max Canyon;



I've caught some dandy fish on Whitlock's Sculpin (big ones) and Skykomish Sunrises also. The list is long but some other mentionable are Black Heron, Green Butt Skunk very sparsely tied, and my Spey Ghost. During the day time I use the blacks and grays and early morning and evening - overcast days the bright ones.

Kill the hens you kill the river.

Hitcher's trout flies

Refer to the previous note from notellem creek ... and no offense to anybody > If I was tying what John (Hitcher) was tying, I would fish those for trout!

I swing everything from size 28 soft hackle midges to giant articulated sculpins and crawdads. I usually try to swing what's hatching/swimming. When there's nothing hatching, I've had pretty good luck on flies like these:







Cheers,

Dan

I don,t target trout much but when I do a Mickey Finn in the salty Bras D'or Lakes a Muddler in fresh water and a Max Canyon does very well also
