    This is the smartest sounding drunk post I've seen on WFF. Congratamentalations can/will yes, answer whence question.

    Temperature is a big deal. The colder is gets, the longer you want to tickle the nose of a salmon or steelhead. Sometimes you even have to hit them upside the head with your offering a couple times to induce a take. When it's warmer, they're a little more frisky and will sometimes move clear across an entire pool to slam your fly while you soil your waders and prematurely WONK the fly away from the fish's mouth.

    Concerning "the colour or size of the salmonflies dependentable of the themperature"

    ..... yeeeeeeah man.

    *Points to his location*

    I'm going to guess English isn't his first language. Way to be an ass, though :)

    When's the last time you were in the Netherlands?

    They speak much better English than most of America!

    They do in parts of Netherland. But no, I've never been there, I'm a proud Norseman and I don't' mingle with dykes :)

    I'd suggest that you refrain from fishing when the water temperature drops below 70 F......it may not help your fishing but it would sure open up a lot of runs for the rest of us!
