The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.
Thanks for the info Joe. I've not looked at any Partridge skins lately because I've a full skin already. I think my local shop has one or two on the shelf, and it would be worth knowing if their prices doubled as well. I will also be at Cabela's on Sunday, so I can compare prices.
As for a shortage, I have not heard of any, but I'm usually the last to know anything.
