Default Bugs of the Underworld

I don't remember if these vids were posted before but thought they would be worth repeating.

I've seriously considered taking some of Ralf and Lisa Cutters Classes since they're in Truckee, CA and thats only 2 hours from where I live in Sacramento, County.

I had seen the first video, but not the second...Thanks! While it's often stated that a dead drift is important, it's clear from these videos that nymphs do not float like driftwood in the water. Charles Ritz discusses fishing with Frank Sawyer, and how Sawyer would twitch his nymph as they passed in front of a trout. While I haven't employed that technique much, I have used it with success. Seeing the midge pupa swim to the surface makes me wonder about hook shape as well, although I have tied some larva lace nymphs on hooks that were given a subtle S bend.

Speaking of dead drift, I suppose that's more of a caution not to allow drag to develop in the line and leader. I've twitched dry flies with good results, especially while watching the hatch twitching and skating on the water surface.

A good companion book to "Bugs..." is Ralph Cutter's "Fish Food."

I've watched Ralf's dvd dozens of times. See something new almost every time.
Makes one think!! Twenty years ago, Ralf shared with me his insights from swimming with fish/bugs. It changed everything for me.

I just want to know why some regions have more hatches than others. I live in the south and I've never seen a hatch like the one on the tail end of the second video.

There are a plethora of reasons among some are nutrients in the water, substrate, temperatures, pollution and even variations from year to year due to seasonal drifts in life cycles.
Here is an example of a good year caddis hatch on the Dream Stream.
