I have taken an intrest in fly fising this stream in the past 2 years, although I have float fished it for 8 years now. I was wondering if anyone else fly fishes it, and what flys you might like to use on this stream? Last year a gentleman told me he likes to use beadhead prince nymphs, and brown or black stone flys. Any information on this would be of great help as opening day is on the way.

The nymphs you mentioned are always good. Why not experiment a little with various nymphs and tell us how you did?

If the water's up at all, try dead drifting and swinging a black woolybugger, or other streamer.

Jeremy,
If stockies are what you are hunting try eggs, buggers, generic nymphs. If you explore the upper reaches try bright high floating attractors like humpies, royal wulffs, and Mr. Rapidans. YZOu won't find many big fish but you will find many Mtn Jewels if you are persistent.

JOHNW, do you fish this stream often? If so maybe we could get together and do some fishing. Let me know as the same for the rest of you.

I've never wet a line in Shermans actually but I have a few aquaintances who do. Of course I put it on the list every year and something always happens.
Always looking for someone to hi tthe water with.
