The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
An additional piece of information. Rainbow had been recently stocked in the body of water. Could the dorsal fin erosion be from overcrowding in a fisheries farm? One problem w/ this solution is that the rainbow I caught was 13.5", isn't that much bigger than what would be the normal stocking size?
