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.

Lake Michigan anglers, particularly those in Chicago, are very excited about a new salmon subspecies. It is a variety first seen in Poland.

It is a cross between a Coho Salmon, a Walleye, and a Muskie.

It's called a Kowalski.

Does it stick its snout out of the water and yell, "Stella! Stella!"?

Didn't the old Packers Football team have a lineman whose name was Kowalski. Point it out to me and I'll catch it.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.
