Problem solved. Both Alpy and Old Lefty are good guys - they'll get along just fine. This was just a misunderstanding between friends.

Please don't refer to me as THE expert; I'm just a guy who has some experience with these critters and their releationship to the trout.

As for when to fish Tricos, my feeling is anytime the surface isn't cluttered with rising fish.

As for Paralep nymphs, I have three different patterns to cover up to five different species. Here's my representation for Paraleptophlebia adoptiva, the first one of the year to appear.

Note of caution: please don't judge by how a fly appears when dry.



Whatever you prefer Dave is fine by me you opened my eyes as a young fly fisher to "micro" nymphs, mainly paraleps and tricos. Please don't go cause of 1 comment.

Anyway, this knowledge along with a few on stream words from H.A. a few months ago has brought me a long way in a short period of time.

That being said I don't think many can or do put the time in to fishing small nymphs to realize how truly important they are in a trouts diet. Works out better for me in the end

I kinda assumed it was tongue-in-cheek, or at least I was going to assume so coz I like both of them.

There's ego around these parts, and Old Lefty doesn't have it. He's got confidence, and he's got the chops to back it up but its sure not ego...

You want to see an ego, spend an afternoon with me doing something other than FF'ing. Actually, in a Freudian sense, its all just Id. Ego and Superego have been on a lunch date for about 35 years now, but we're off target.

Oh, and OldLefty..if you leave, I'll be aimless and lost. HA will have to become my guiding light, and just think of the problems that'd cause.

OMG. Code Adam, onstream.

"Yes, officer, he's an exceptionally LARGE toddler. Don't bribe him with candy, 'cause he'll just rip your arm off."

This could be fun!

No problem. I have Old Lefty's number in speed dial.

Dave bails me out when I need answers, too.

You're a bit too hard on yourself, Gary. If you'd fish somewhere for fish that didn't have PhD's in refusals, you'd hammer the snot out of 'em. Time for a road trip.

Unless its dries, I swear to you, the Stream Gods are trying to take away the one thing I hold dear.

I lost count how many missed takes I had today for the evening sulphurs.

Here's my plan for fixing this problem.

We'll trade rods and then fish. If you then hook fish, it's the rig - leader and/or fly.

If I hook fish with your rig, the problem is with you. Our rods are pretty similar, if you're using your 8' 4wt.

From that point, I have to see what you're doing. This is fixable. Relax.

Oh, good Lord. The man owns the ultimate dry fly rod, and he's using that howitzer. There's probably ripped off lips on his flies!

Actually, its regardless of rod. I've been through 4 different ones, always the same output. The 10er makes me look like I know what I'm doing though, its impossibled to throw open loops.

Gary - whether you know what you're doing or not, the 10fter still looks like a 7' brookie rod in your hands ;)
