Size 18-20 wd40. I've had days where the fishing is tough, catching fish every now and then while switching through patterns, then I tie on a calibaetis pattern, specifically a rust and green wd40 and its non stop fish.

I would fish them together but for some reason I started to get away from the smaller flies. We have had great success with the p-lady.

I never heard of the Carey special it looks like a good soft hackle fly!

As stated above, all of these flies work well, but my main go-to fly anymore for topwater is a #16 Mini-Hopper. I've tied up many different colors, finding no indication which is better over the other.

At present, I am only using a bright yellow or orange foam as an indicator, as it is easier seen then other colors.

I can always count on #14 Simi Seal Leeches in red black or olive, with either a red or cream colored glass bead.

When it gets tiring catching with the leech pattern, I'll go to any other pattern, just to see if I can work the magic with those patterns.
Good to know about the mini hoppers we used to do well with coachmans and humpy’s.

I have a few wd40’s I’ll have to try them.

Thanks everyone for refreshing my memory and giving me new patterns to try. Does anyone have much luck with damsels on the rim or are these more abundant in the white mountains? We fished a lake in southern Utah last year and had a killer day with both nymph and adult damsel patterns.

Yup. A BWO climbing out of its old rusty casing.
