Thanks, I like sites like this because it concentrates people with the same madness that I have.
Keep trying those same fish. I have found that one of the best tricks is just keeping at it. Some days they will almost fight over the right fly, other days you just get to look at them as they zoom away.
I tend to tie in some bead chain eyes or even dumbell eyes so the fly has some weight and drops hook up.
Good luck, let me know how it goes. I have a killer pattern right now that has taken a dozen fish in the past couple of weeks.
