Hello, I was wondering what kind of flies you guys use on lake michigan for trout and salmon. I have been fly fish for a few years but I am new to the big pond. I tye my own so any recipe suggestions would be appreciated as well. I have heard that the salmon love the flashy stuff, like all flash, any truth to this? Thanks

Although I haven't fly fished lake michigan yet, I saw a steelhead taken on a white and chartreuse clouser on a very clear day. 12 foot leader with a few split shot. Given that they nail those spoons, I would imagine any fly that you could get to flash like that would work. I'll bet you could tie something like a spoon with epoxy. :)5
