Default Flies at deer creek

Was thinking of possibly heading up Friday to take the float tube out to the north end of deer creek and I was wondering if anyone has done it and if it's worth taking the fly rod or should I just stick with the spinning rod?? I haven't used the fly rod in about three years so very rusty with it.

Thanks.

I normally do pretty well with white wooly buggers and different kinds of leeches. I'm sure you wouldn't get skunked if you threw on a bugger of some sort and trailed and attractor nymph behind you'd be in good shape, I always catch a few as long as I'm bouncing along the bottom.

My #1 goto lure for DC is a Orange or Black/Gold Roostertail. They seem to outfish everything else... by a WIDE margin. If you want to go with flies, try something that looks sortof similar?

What do you mean by attractor?? I'm not to good and knowledgable about fly fishing. I have just dabbled in it some. Do you put the attractor above the wooly bugger and then have the wooly bugger sink down and drag that as your kicking along??

The fly rod is always "worth" taking in my opinion. The only way to knock the rust off is to use it. Stripping or drifting a bugger is always fun with floating or sinking line.

Take both rods. Once you've given the fly rod a shot and if you're not getting much action with it you can always switch to the spinning rod.

Both are always part of my weaponry.

Good luck.

My favorite way to do it is just tie on the wooly bugger first and then thrown on about a foot and a half of tippet to the hook of your wooly bugger next you tie on an attractor like a copper John or maybe even a hares ear. Just cast it out at far as your are comfortable then just drag it behind you along the bottom.
