Re: Sturdy's Fancy - a deadly Californian beetle!!
Hugh: Congrats on the great looking Brown Trout!
Awhile back I was reading Trout Food by Ralph Cutter and he mentioned that it was common in the afternoon thermals for beetles and small hoppers to get blown into high mtn lakes where normally you wouldn't expect to find them. Not sure if that was the case where you were fishing or not, but an interesting observation none the less.
