What to run on the boards?
I only run flasher fly setups on the 7 color or higher, but I typically stick to spoons on all my boards unless flasher fly is really producing on the riggers or dipsys.
Orange spoons up high. Yellows, blues, greens down deeper. My biggest fish last year was 24# and came on a full core with a pro-king magnum chilly willy spoon.
Fishing high in the water column (25 feet and up) I go with spoons and I am probably looking for steelhead. NOt that a flasher fly 5 feet down wont catch a steelie but I have caught my biggest share on orange spoons up top. If your working the 30 to 60 foot range you can certainly put out a flasher fly, spoon, jplug you name it.
