Kennebago muddler and olive heron.

It is a plain fact, however, that downstream fishing with a non-imitative fly (lure, in the British sense) does not mix comfortably with upstream imitative fishing...I'll stay out of the argument about whether this technique is really fly fishing. In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.

Two would be a difficult choice but it would be "soft hackles" and "Hares Ears". A third would be the "Wood duck Heron"

Early in the year woolly bugger and hares ear, later a terrestrial with a copper john/price nymph dropper.

I have more then two..... I have a dozen or so if I can't catch a trout with, it's ovah!!!

usual, 88, yellow hornberg with red flash , green heron, prince nymph, soft hackle hares ear, "echo lake special" (my friend ties a variation of a picket pin), Red demon, black ghost (in a couple of ponds in particular), green wooly bugger, and wait for it..... a maple syrup. I have caught some very large trout on them using a full sink line. typically in ponds that might have yellow perch fry .

I know it just said two, but that's pretty much the bottom tray in one of my fly boxes. If NH trout aren't pounding one of those, things are not looking good for the night, or the retrieval speed wasn't figured out.
