    Nice collection of flies, Dennis! I see from your website you are sold out on the Halfpounder book. If anyone wants to sell their copy, I'd be a willing buyer. Thanks.

    I’d say for the American you can’t go wrong with swing’n a Lady Caroline this time of year or even year round. Winter, Orange Heron or any Ackroyd in black/0range, black/purple or black/chartreuse. Any winged fly in those colors.

    I have done well on the American with a black general practitioner. The long spey style hackle gives it allot of motion in the water. My go to pattern on it.

    I tie them almost like this but maybe some longer hackle.
    I think a black wooly bugger would probably work just as well. Or better yet an egg sucking leach.
    Just liked tying the fancy flies.
