    calvin1 and western are down for fewer people, 2 patterns each so i will close this swap at 8 people. so 8 people, 2 patterns each and does not matter if they are dries or nymphs

    I have.n't been in a swap for some time. I am only working one job now so I will join in. Give me a couple of days to pick my pattern. 10 bugs by March 1st is that correct?
    Hey Joe fish don't eat yellow sally dries? What's up with that. sometimes there is a hatch on the NF CDA that I thought was yellow sallys but maybe it is a big yellow mayfly?
    I have never been able to get a good look at one. I have a yellow sally pattern that has worked well in this situation but it probably looks too much lke a stimmie so it would be rejected by this astute group.
    Blessings

    The Big Hole around Melrose gets a killer yellow sally hatch too and for some reason I can never get a dry that they love. They eat alot of different sally dries, but not anywhere close to the rate that they eat nymphs. I don't know why, maybe it's just my lack of confidence in sally dries???
