<P>The type of fly depends on the time of year that you are fishing for them.&nbsp; Egg patterns, egg-sucking leeches, wooly buggers... big streamers, small bead head nymphs.&nbsp; When they're in the mood, they'll hit just about any of the big streamers... just have to find the right color.<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/wink.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></P>

<P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="courier new, courier, mono" size=3>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; It's been about 5 years since I've fished Steelies in the Grand, But we had very good success with either red or chartreuse 1/16 led head hair jigs(black,white or chartreuse hair)</FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3></FONT>&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3>&nbsp; If they were being real sensitive bead heads same colors worked better. also the lightest leader you can handle 6#,4#, 2# Fluorocarbon</FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3>&nbsp;Be sure whether you're noodle rod or fly fish that you let the lure tic along the bottom with enough slack that it drifts natural! You can also tip your lure with wax worms, mini heads ect... for scent.</FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3></FONT>&nbsp;</P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3>&nbsp; Good luck wish I was going<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/frown.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3>&nbsp; I miss being up north when fishing season comes in<IMG src="http://www.websitetoolbox.com/images/boards/smilies/bawl.gif" align=absMiddle border=0></FONT></P> <P style="MARGIN: 0px"><FONT face="Courier New" size=3></FONT>&nbsp;</P>
