    I can't believe this isn't common knowledge.

    Since I went with dries last time, thought I'd try a soft hackle emerger.

    Riseform, Nice softie. What hakle is that?

    Sorry, folks, I know I haven't given this thread the attention it deserves. I arrived at my summer job in West Yellowstone on the 15th. Started setting up the fly shop for the season. Wound up in the hospital in Bozeman with Pneumonia. Am now back in WA, just released from the VA hospital at American Lake. I'll try to do better.

    Wow, Ron, hope you're on the mend! A number of my co-workers ended up with pneumonia during the last month. Mean bug out there.

    Sorry to hear about the pneumonia, that's always scary when it requires hospitalization. I'm glad you're out and improving. Is a summer job in W. Yellowstone a new thing or have you always done that?

    As for the hackle, I wish I could give you and honest answer. It was not pulled from a skin, but instead from an unmarked ziplock bag of loose "partridge" soft hackle feathers that I've had for so long I can't remember where or when they were purchased.

    The feather appears to be dark partridge to me.

    GAT, that's what I was thinking as well, but there is a Plover coloration to it that made me wonder.

    Riseform, Pneumonia, coupled with the altitude, made it really hard to breathe. Had a very good doctor in Bozeman that gave me a loaner Oxy bottle to help me breathe overnight, loaded me up with high grade antibiotics, and sent me on my way the following morning. The lower I got in altitude, the better I felt. The summer job is a new one for me, and I'll be heading back as soon as I can get a clean bill of health from the Doc. Running a fly shop on the Madison River is tough duty, requires hospitalization onccce in a while.

    Tough call for me, being a wet fly kind of guy. porterHaus, you are the man for June. That fly simply says "Eat Me!" I'll be watching from Montana.
