The Ausable River has been running high and even more rain is falling. After tiring of streamer fishing and nymphing. I couldn't resist tossing a few dry flies to try tempting some hungry trout. My dry fly choice to entice trout from deep holes and from the shelter of boulders is typically an attractor pattern. A few of my favorite patterns are the Madame x parachute and the Ausable bomber. They are both big, buggy and float well.
