      Stimulator. Green body, yellow head. Tied with bleached deer hair. The thin hair, not the thick hair. Cannot recall the name of the hair at this moment.

        Coastal deer hair. Had to google it. Must be getting old.

          Royal Wulff, Tan and Black Wooly bugger, and I have a fly I concocted of my own design from the Elk Hair Caddis, but has a chartreuse head.

            Most places I find them, they'll hit anything you put in the water.

                  Not really a fly, but I used to knock the brookies with a Stonefly nymph. They couldn't resist.

                    Muddler minnow was developed specifically for fishing big brookies (they call them speckled trout here) on the Nipigon River. By the way, the Nipigon is still a world class trophy fishery for that species.

                      Right now, a wet fly, the skip wet with green and a little tinsel in the body to make it shimmer.

                        might sound crazy but I like a size 4 natural brown zonker caught two 13 inchers last week on it.

                          I make a little wet fly that is whitish tan with wings. Always catch a couple off it.
