Something cool I saw
 
Yesterday was my first fly fish outing of the year. Started out trying a few flies I tied to see how they worked. Only caught three on the 3 different flies so I switched to midging because there was some rising going on. While standing there I saw a mayfly fluttering around about 15" above the water and it almost hovered in on spot too long. A rainbow shot straight up out of the water coming up a couple inches short of the mayfly which flew off. I've seen fish jump out of the water at a distance but got to see upclose that trout going for that mayfly.

I saw somting like that too. While fishing the gun powder a few yrs ago, I spotted this pretty butterfly . It was about 4-5" in wing span all white. well she gets real close to the water and a brown comes out of the water and takes it down, wings sticking out both sides of his jaws, he was about 13 -15". It scared me when he jumped. I'll never forget that one till the day i die.
