The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
"Fly Fishing for Trout is the greatest sport in the world. On any level it is an exciting encounter with nature. On the highest level, it is a chance to match wits not against a fish, but against the power of evolution itself to hone a creature's instinct for scrutiny to masterful levels. Coaxing a selective trout into taking your fly is the most satisfying challenge in fishing.
This site is both a scientific reference to help you catch more trout while fly fishing and a photographic tribute to our trout streams."
This is from the introduction to this site...I hate to step on anyone's bunnions, but maybe you should visit a Bass Pro site for bait harvesting info. We will be more than happy to show you how to tie one of Harry Murray's Hellgrammite imitations or a dark colored Woolly Bugger...Here's hoping a Corydalis cornutus nips you on the end of your bait grubbing little fingers...I have a feeling you already knew this and were trying to prick ours a bit...What do you think?
