The most common types have marabou dressing, with or without a chenille body. Soft plastics work well, too, especially tube lures from 1 to 11/2 inches. Black, white, olive, and brown are the best colors. Stay away from some of the garish hues in vogue with crappie fishermen. If you tie flies (or know a friend who does), you can create jigs in outstanding patterns. A Muddler Minnow jig works great for all kinds of trout, and a Black Woolly Bugger version is just plain devastating on big rainbows.
