Yep bought one two years ago, folds up nice and small, slap it over the net and you are off and running

Now I just have to learn what the hell I'm looking at in the net.

I've said many times......I'll spend serious money on a rod.
But, the most important tool I own, is two dollars of homemade bug net. The sticks I use for making my net are eighteen years old....
(The second most important tool, a thermometer.)
Don't leave home without both.
And, you don't need to know what's in it.
Just take a specimen/crack vial loaded with 90% rubbing alcohol in your vest. ALWAYS!
A large mouth fancy gelato jar is great for skulpins, small crays, Hoppers, etc....
Then, take the bug to the shop when you buy flies.
Don't have to invest brain cells in learning Latin, or the local shop's fly names.....
And one more tip.
If you find a bug in the net, that fish are eating, that has no matching fly at the store......
It's time to learn to tye one up.....that's called, an advantage.

Losthwy, I bought mine yesterday, thanks for the ridiculously cheap, but very awesome tip!

And Bigfly, what a great idea with the crack vial filled with alcohol for bugs. I am definitely getting that for my vest!

Hahahahahahahahaha, your not alone. Really, you don't need to know what your looking at, as long as you can find a fly that looks like whatever your looking at. But sometimes that doesn't even catch fish (my weekend last week) lol

Great thread!

For those that want to get to know the insects in more detail. In Dave Huges fine book "Handbook of Hatches". He recommends one dram glass vials from a scientific supply house or university bookstore, the kind with plastic insert lids. Use ethyl alcohol, rubbing alcohol will turn the insects brittle. Tweezers and magnifying glass.

"Handbook of Hatches" was the first fly fishing book that I read. I felt that it gave me a clear understanding of what I was getting into. I couldn't recommend it more highly!

I hear Everclear is good, but I can't afford to put bugs in it......
My program doesn't involve permanent preservation. just getting people past info overload.
If I need another bug next year I'll catch one. (But bubbles in the vial are terrible for specimens. Top them off.)
Catch it, go to store, buy flies, catch fish.......
No need to scare folks with hatch curves and classifications.........
Once I've hooked them, then, I lay it on.........
Keep it fun.

Jim
