so i decided to start fly fishing.. i have a general knowledge of flies for salmon and steelhead but i'm going after trout. i'm getting a cheap 30-50$ outfit does anybody have advice about outfit/fly selections for coastal cutthroat? i already have bead head prince ordered on ebay in size 16 but thats about it.

I have my best luck down there using an elk hair cadis/size 16-20 or a royal coachman in the same sizes. I'm not much of a nymph fisherman. I try but not that hard.

Remember that coastal cutthroat season is complete for this year. If you are stopped make sure you tell them you are fising for Steelhead.
