Anyone know of good floating small green beetle or green weevil pattern. I was thinking something might be out there that uses some green foam.
Yesterday on a northern wisconsin stream, the trout were keyed on eating these things, almost like a major hatch. After observing for a while, I noticed the beetles were either getting knocked off trees or blow down in the water by wind. But once on the water, they couldn't get back in the air, don't even know if they can fly really. But the trout noticed them for sure. As always, had nothing even close to imitating them.
Even standing in about 2 feet of water and casting, but not moving my legs, trout were swimming all around me looking for those things, crazy stuff. They must be about a size 16-20, metallic green color. If anyone comes up with a good pattern and it works, I'll even pay you to make a bunch . I'm going to try some things out myself and see what I can come up with as well.
Very similiar to a pic I found on the internet:
