The Wriggle Rig
"At this time of year, the one fly I never leave home without is a red wire worm, and I usually fish it with a Pheasant Tail dropper," says Tim Linehan, owner of Linehan Outfitting in Troy, Mont., who fishes big water like the Kootenai, as well as small streams. "It's heavy, so it gets the dropper down fast and is as much a part of the rig as it is a worm. It's an attractor, too. The fish love it right now."
