Ok here we go, been out of the loop but I figured If'n i was coming back I better go big or not at all! First for the disclaimer: What you are about to read may offend you, Its not vulgar nor foul mouthed. It is straight forward and in all seriousness the way I run my swaps. Some are offended by my direct nature, well bummer, Deal with it. I don't like candy dancin' around what needs to be said and don;t expect others to put up with it out of me. so with that: Big flies catch big fish my friends, and the Salmonflies of the Pacific northwest are about as big and meaty as they come! Anybody who has experienced the hatch knows what I am talking about, I've been on the Henry's fork and heard one of these 6 legged buzzards comin' in on a Kamikaze run over 150 feet away, and the sight of thee bugs stood out like a fighter plane on a suicide run. The fish lose all sanity and become glutinous fiends I once watched a cutty shoot out from under a log to pounce on a fallen salmonfly turn to saunter back under his log , only to turn and attack my fly like a sailor on shore leave. When I finally landed this 18" fish besides the fly I removed this pig had the one in his mouth and 2 YES TWO other full grown Salmonflies still in his throat! His belly felt like he had a load of crayons in his gullet. below is a link to the nymph just to show the size of the bug http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t106/Pvd3sche/Pteronarcyscalifornica2.jpg RULES: look at the name of my fly and you'll get the idea, nothing smaller than a 3x sz 4 ! Foam and synthetic or feather and fur, heck, whatever you want but make it big make and make it float! First 7 are in, due date will be April One and that ain't no joke!
