    Even if Rick has ran into some freakish stonefly theory? fact? the vast majority of stoneflies crawl out of the water. There's always some weirdass critter out there that just has to be different from all the others :)

    Nice Salmonfly man! There hatching here too on the Lower Sacramento River. My grandpa caught one about the same size a couple days ago.
