Entoms? Whew, good to know that. Thanks! I thought those were bits of macula floating around inside me eyes, or that I was staring at that "wind map" for too long. Dang! What are all those little black things crawling on my kitchen floor?

Shit, there's too much male bonding going on here. Hi, all you old men.

I looked at that hatch chart you provided and noticed that those bugs hatch about the same time here i n Montana.

What gets me is when people come to Montana to fish they ask what flies you need to fish here. I just used what I used in Washington, they all work here.
Nice to hear from you, OMJ. Based in the average number of degree days difference between the two locations, the respective hatches average about (18) days later in W. MT than in W. WA. And, as you say, the same flies should work just as well for you in MT as they did in WA.

Need to ask a question on what flies represent. Like what does a Royal Wulff represent to a fish. There's a small lake in the hills out of Dillon(it takes a 4X4 to get there).. The Cutts in that lake go nuts for this fly. I've tried other flies but the Royal Wulff out does them all.

Funny stuff there. Those Entoms make me itch like chiggers.

Chris - Thanks for making it happen
Roger - Thanks for hosting. I imagine you were behind this idea

Hi Tim-

Well, thankfully the vast majority of them don't bite. As far as credit for the idea is concerned, I can't claim any, but when opportunity knocks, ...

Hi OMJ-

I am more than happy to answer your question, but please do me the favor of posting it on the Fly Fishing Entomology Sub-forum.

Thanks,
