Midweek, there were enough sulfurs (I prefer the regular guy-blue collar spelling...) flitting around to matter all through the Sugar Creek watershed. But enough to matter didn't seem to matter to the fish, if indeed there were enough fish around to pay any attention to them anyway.

I saw no rises, flashes or anything else. Based on what I hear and have observed, I think stocking coverage was spotty at best and I also think last year was pretty brutal to the wild fish in the drainage.

The swallows seemed to be having a good time though...

Sulphurs were coming off yesterday afternoon on Spring Creek, but the wind was causing havoc.Lots of debris in the water. The fish seemed to be keyed in on emergers. Threw some duns but they were ignored. I managed five despite the crappy conditions. The flies were on the small size although I did see a few larger more orange cast files coming off at dusk.

The sulphurs are probably currently hatching on every stream in PA that has sulphurs. Which is a lot of streams.

The sulphurs have been hatching for a long time now.

The big question is when will the Green Drakes start? It will be soon. If they haven't already.

The hatches have been running early this year.

Last year we had drakes on the 15th in my area, with this warm spell and the right plants blooming we are figure we will be seeing them this weekend.

Not to mention that it's also the correct spelling if you're talking about the element.

The "ph" spelling is mostly British in non-scientific contexts.

Neither spelling is wrong, though.

I never thought of any class associations when writing "sulphur."

And I don't think others do either.

"Sulphur" just seems to be the most commonly used spelling in flyfishing writing, and I think that has been the case for a long time.

I agree that neither spelling is wrong, though.

There aren't any "class" differences -- just scientific vs non-scientific and American vs British.

I was intrigued a few years back when I realized that I had spelled it both ways in the same sentence, so I looked it up:

When I was at the jam this year I did get a cool picture of a sulphur nypmh. Underside and topside.
