The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
It sure demonstrates why dry fly fishing can be difficult when trout are focused on hovering adults. This scenario is very common on Western ponds and lakes. Now if I can just figure out how to get my fly to hover 3" above the water... :)
