Ide say stick with matching the hatch.. and I have ALWAYS had awesome luck with small patterns, griffiths gnats, trico patterns, and cdc flies all kick..

But, take into consideration that small fish wont eat big flies..(they cant) and small flies will catch almost anything.. so if you want to weed out the little fellas use the big flies.. And, I dont know if this is true.. but I think big flies are harder to present because fish can see them better.. small flies are small lol, and thus harder to see and define as food, so fish reconize them as a local insect, but cant tell its a fake.. Make sense?
