Hey folks I am an avid fly fisherman I love the bluegill and panfish in the lakes around here but have recently stepped up to the trout plate in Oklahoma on the lower Mtn. Fork river. This past weekend I witnessed trout surfacing on emergers that are hatching right now. This is all well and good but I have used a double nymph rig the whole day and switched over to an emerger pattern without the indicator. I am new to trout and thought that the low sinking emerger would have or at least I thought it would have been pretty easy to see the strike on and it was but the reaction time was oh so slow! I am wondering if anyone has any tips on reaction time and when and where to use dry flies I know the best time to use them is when the trout are surfacing, I guess I am wondering is there better times to load up on dry flies or not? Thanks for the help I will keep checking back to see what you all think.
