    That looks like a place that I should have been today. Any chance you would share the name of the river?

    Dang! Love water like that. Looks like there was a lot of Glossassoma's Caddis out there. Next time, you should try a #16 cream Caddis pupa, might get you more hook ups. My 2 cents.

    Thank you! I'm just starting to wade into the entomology and finding it difficult to organize my learning. The one in the pic was caught on a #16 pheasant tail flashback.

    wow..beautiful photos! i spent the day cleaning the garage - would have been a lot more fun to have been on that river. The upside is that i found some gear that had been missing for a while!

    It's got to be on the wet side of the state. Too many trees on the hills in the pictures.
