    Hi Devlin...

    I'd rather go 9wt as opposed to 6wt as there is always wind. The flies and depend on how you would like to catch the fish. Sometimes I like to see the strikes and fish a floater with a Flipper. Alternatively, or if the Flipper does not work, then an intermediate or fast sinking line with clousers, crazy charlies or another wierd looking fly tied with lazerfilm and marabou. Epoxy Minnows and Beady Eye minnows also work exceptionally well. The trick is not to use very big flies - up to about 1/0-2/0 max in size.

    At night, there is only one fly I use, and that is the Night Time Glassy.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    Sudesh

    Cool! Thanks for the advice - unfortunately it's a little late to put a 9wt onto my wishlist, so hopefully nothing will reduce my 6wt to splinters!
