The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

This species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

hey eastern pa. if your looking to tie a sulpher with CDC just tie in a cdc parachute instead of the Palmer hackle that most patterns use. check out the book tying small flies, and the site flytyingworld.com, also during a sulpher hatch, you will clean up with a CDC emerger with a CDC nymph. but if your all about drys then go with the first pattern, use a size 18 hook, 16 will probably be to large and will be rejected, also look at very old patterns, in the hub bub of trying to improve things, much has been forgotten.
always learning
