I was fishing for the BEST hatches of midges and BWO at DePuy's Spring Creek (www.depuyspringcreek.com) this afternoon. But the weather was far from best (check up my blog). Anyway, one of stomach samples show a large mayfly along with midge and BWO. Attached File  P3220945.JPG   83.68KB   60 downloads

I just thought interesting. I guess that's PMD? Species of mayflies we find at spring creeks are limited, you know....But it's March and under this super inclement weather...... I hope some of you find this interesting too. Attached File  P3220947.JPG   125.18KB   59 downloads

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson


There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929
