Question - Favorite Top 5 FF Species

Taking your current home waters into account which you can reach in a one day fishing trip.

What are the top five fresh or salt water species you would fly fish for in order of preference ?

Assume all fish are equally available to you for the answer.

Heres mine:

1. Steelhead
2. King Salmon
3. Stream resident trout (brown, rainbow, brook)
4. Small mouth bass
5. Large mouth Bass

P.S. Q - Carp are # 6.

Here's mine, in no particular order:

Largemouth bass
Smallmouth bass
Striped bass
Bluefish
Pike

There are many others, but those are the tops for me.

BTW Hal, you've listed far more than five (three alone in number 3). Manipulating the numbers again?

Theres just too much trout fishing around here I guess to list all separate trout species, trout fly fishing is where I started long ago and is what I really am. My true love, etc...

Numbers were devised to be manipulated, just ask Fred the banker, how he manipulates interest rates and down payments on loans, to close the deal. He probably has it down to a mental science by now, poor oregonian real estate consumers.

LOL

4. Walleye (can't fly fish for them but too tasty to pass on)
5. Lake Perch (ditto, see above)

Who should the quote "Lies, Damn lies and Statistics" be credited to. I'm betting a politician.

Stripers - places & action

My five, in no particular order, are:

Striped Bass
Smallmouth Bass
Carp
Northern Pike
False Albacore

If we're allowed to add "close relatives" then I'd include largemouth bass with smallmouth bass and bonito with albies.

mjyp -- Have you had much success catching walleyes on the flyrod? They aren't one of the species that I normally associate with flyfishing. Care to share some of your stories and tactics (in a new thread)??? I know I'd like to learn more, and I'm sure others would too!
