Since I consider myself to still be a newbie to fly fishing, I plan on fishing Big Horn Sheep Canyon for a few days then move up toward BV and Leadville.

My trip is planned for the first two weeks in August. I have never fished using a terrestrial but would like to try a grasshopper and ant patterns. What size should I be looking for...14/16 or something larger? I sure appreciate any help/tips. Thanks!
