In the summer and early fall, try the Purple Haze as a trailer behind a really big attractor like the YSF Stinger (Foam Terrestrial). Simple attach with a 18"-24" piece of tippet (5-6X) and hold on. On particularly warm days in late Indian summer (October), both flies can be very effective.
Hard takes, tight lines, bent rods and good fly tying to all.
