Olive over white size 6/8 Clouser with a size 18 pheasant tail tailing off the back has been working for me. Most of the takes have been when I can get the swing to a slow enough speed that I think that I have got hung up on the bottom.

At this time of year, (actually any time of year), I often swing articulated leeches in black and peacock leeches, typically on type 3 tips. As water temps continue to improve weekly and numerous hatches start to fire up, I like to swing Backswimmers, caddis emerger patterns. wet fly's, leeches etc.on tapered leaders ranging from 10' -15'. I think the presentation is always the most important part of the equation. The magic combination of the type of leader and/or sink tip, casting angle, swing speed, depth, action on the fly, stripping etc.

I fish exclusively in spring with my 2 hander. Think Jack Gartside….. Heading steelheading for spring run in 4 days - let you know how swinging goes.

I like to swing gartside leeches during run off, but with the low flows right now, (down to a dismal 43 c/m/s), they tend to hang up and break off to often. Good luck on the hunt for Chrome.
