    The Squanacook in Massachusetts has both big brown trout and small brookies, depending on where you are fishing.

    As far as what type of fly to use – a lot depends on the time of the year you will be fishing. Most fly anglers would take a long a variety of flies in several different sizes, including some dry flies, nymphs, and perhaps streamer patterns.

    If you’re set on trying just one fly, the Wooley Bugger is considered one of the top producing flies in that it will catch fish almost anywhere, and just about any species. There are a variety of ways to tie the Wooley Bugger with some local variations as well.

    Your best bet may be to try to hook with a local fly club in the area or get to know some local fly anglers. A bit of casting instruction never hurt and usually always is a benefit!
