Here is my top 5 dry flies for trout in North Idaho

The Adams

I catch fish on the Adams all year long.  If the fish are willing to hit anything on the surface, they will hit an Adams

Grey Wulff

Probably my favorite of the list.  This fly floats well and can attract fish in swift and rough water.

Elk Hair Caddis

When there are Caddis Flies in the air, you don't want to be caught without this pattern

Blue Winged Olive

This is my go to mayfly pattern.

Joe's Hopper

In North Idaho in the fall, when the hoppers are out, Joe's is the pattern I turn to most.
