Choosing the right fly is important. Having confidence in the fly you choose is even more important. That said, it’s hard to have confidence in the fly you choose, if you’re not selecting flies based on, at the very least, an educated guess. Whoa.
Well then how exactly do you choose the right fly?
We’ve put together a bunch of posts together to answer that very question when targeting some of our favorite species; from bonefish, to trout, to king salmon and steelhead, and today we share them with you.

Sure thing Cameron! Our pal, and long time AK West guest, John Wilkin, thought this system up off our post on storing tube flies in drinking straws (hit the link to check out). We loved the idea so actually had John write up a separate post on the system you’re referring to which you can read by clicking right here. Hope that helps!
