Spotted this guy coming down the river this past summer and land on a tree on the opposite side. I set down my rod and scrambled across the waist deep hole to catch him. Ruined the fishing in that spot but was well worth it, I think.

I find myself frequently setting down my rod to chase around bugs coming off the water or to flip over the rocks in the water.

Re: Stoneflies
Very nice work on the photos! It is always good to take some time to look around and see what is going on in and around the water.

Re: Stoneflies
That's what 's great about fly fishing. You end up looking around at the whole ecosystem & find a lot of other interesting things to enjoy. You tend to get involved in other related things I.E. fly tying, photography, macroinvertebrate studies etc

Re: Stoneflies
thanks very much for those excellent photos...I really like the different angles you showed...I am trying to make up a new stone pattern ...and seeing those pics is so great to help get some proportions and general details, body to wing, antennae length etc...t

Re: Stoneflies
I'm sure that fly will catch fish, but plastic ready made bug parts are going over the line for me, to each his own though

Re: Stoneflies
plastic is Ok I guess...but you can do it with feathers and fur too...but I must admit I have tried a while to mimick that...and havent done it yet...

truth is what appears above water isnt always what things look like at 5-6 knots and under water...???

either way...I hope you de well with that bug...t
