    Default What fly to use under the bung ??

    I don't use these very often but sometimes use them when it get tough, like yesterday I was out at my local fishery thankfully I got a nice rainbow on a dry daddy long legs around 10.5lb then the sun came out then things went down hill.

    So decided to put the indicator on but not sure what flys to use with the indicator if anybody can help me that would be great

    I know people have the own opinions on these but if they catch fish who cares !!

    I've seen a green blob used to great effect.

    I find that buzzer patterns work well when the fish are feeding up in the water. Fish it at about two feet, when everything has settled draw about a yard, this will lift the buzzer and then let it drop again.

    Buzzer and other nymph patterns, but only when the fish go deep. Hanging a blob 2' under an indicator is pure idleness. If the fish are up in the water and you are using buzzers then the take should be self-evident. Learn to detect those and use the indicator only when the fish are deeper down and the takes are very subtle.

    Learn the harder techniques first as they will stand you in much greater stead in the long run.
