Default How to properly "Match the Hatch"

1. Start by picking a destination. Try to find a place that has a few bugs and fish that like to eat them.

2. Take the time to look around and enjoy the outdoor experience.

3. Find some emerging insects - in this case, some kind of stonefly and some Quill Gordons.

4. Locate something in your fly box that's similar in size and color to one of the bugs you observed and tie it to your leader.

5. Cast the imposter to unsuspecting fish and catch a bunch of them. You've now successfully "matched the hatch" - even though
the fish are so innocent that you would have caught them on anything

love the picture of that fully submerged brookie. I'd put that in my top 10 favorite all time brookie pics! Make sure that pic makes it into the brookie pic thread.
