South Fork Magic
During the spring hatch I always use these followed by another small nymph. I usually use 12 or 14. I'm a fan of smaller flys and so I mostly use 14. This is often my choice when drifting the South Fork followed by a size 14 bead head.
Just the other day i was picking up rocks all along the river and nearly everyone of them had multiple golden stones clinging to the underside. This fly is almost an identical match. I got the size 12 and it seems a bit "small" for a size 12, but so were the goldens that were on the rocks. Should work well.
