    I find that a half of piece of Berkley Honeyworm powerbait works better than flys, they hold on to it longer.

    It depends, if i am going for the larger or more active fish I use a popper. For smaller or less active fish I use strip nymphs from size 8-14.

    My football coach who taught me to fly fish uses nothing but a black gnat. i have used poppers and nymphs for them. But i catch most of my fish on a white or black size 14 foam spiders. most of the time i will cast them to a good looking place and let it sit for about 5-10 seconds and if i dont get a hit i will cast it to a different place.

    Yeah, I used red worms on the fly rod too, they seem to work a little bit better than the powerbait.The problem is you have to cast them very softly so they will not tear off, and they are messy.But if the fishing slow, thats the best live bait to stay on your with a fly rod.
