Very nice site Jason!!
I would like alittle thinking of a good night time pattern for the White Miller (Nectopsyche albida )... I seen a few hatching... and the fish are hitting on white woollies buggers... I think if I got closer to the fly itself.. Id pick up alot more fish...
Any thoughts on a fly to tye??

|Here are a few simple flies you might try--|
For active (skittering) adults: Try a white Elk-Hair Caddis, (+/-) #14. If you are tying your own, you might want to add a very pale green body and a light ginger or cream hackle under the light elk- or deer-hair wing.
For spent (flush in the film) adults: Use the same pattern minus the palmered hackle (or just fish the above fly untreated and soggy).
For submerged (drowned or diving) adults: The classic White Miller wet fly works (but add a pale green body if tying your own).
For emerging pupa: You probably won't find a commercial pattern to match the pupa; so tie a soft-hackle style with a pale green (or cream) body ribbed with pearl Krystal Flash, a tan shoulder (thorax) and a collar of the palest partridge you can find.
