Picking weather to fly fish #Stillwater in the #fall can be very challenging! With the change in weather patterns you have to pay attention to the weather more, and do your research. @jerryvigil and @joeshaferflyfishing we use @accuweather to follow weather trends up to the minute this time of year. It can make the difference in you having a safe productive day or a big disaster! 
We have a couple main things we look for when it comes to picking our days out on the still water in the fall.

- Wind - Check those wind forecasts very important especially if you are #floattubing .

- Radar - know where your storms are coming from and when they will hit. One key with this is, if, you have days with multiple storms moving through it can be very difficult to be successful. We look for the storms that set in, it is more stable with pressures and all that science stuff. 

And the last thing we look at is temperatures, we want to know when we are going to get some water warming if any and how much we will have to layer to be comfortable. If you keep a close eye on the weather this time of year you will start to see trends on how weather affects the fly fishing in Still water.  You will be able to plan your day for the most productive fishing and keep yourself protected from the elements.

FALL EURO NYMPHING - If you are into the European Methods, don’t forget to nymph some big bugs this fall. I like to tie streamer patterns on jig nymph hooks so it is easy to not only dead drift, but also twitch back at the end of your drift. Here is one of my favorite patterns for this technique:

Hook: TMC 403 BLJ #8
Bead: Slotted Faceted Black 4 mm
Tail: Black Marabou, Purple Flashabou
Body: Spectra Dubbing (Fine) Fiery Black
Collar: Black Hen Neck
