As temperatures continue to hover around freezing and my local river cranking well above a fishable level, I have nothing left but to pretend to tie flies and look back on warmer times. I found this photo of one of my first fish caught on a dry fly. This guy, and many others, are the only things besides red eared slider turtles that inhabit my buddy's backyard pond on the east side. Funnily enough, they take elk hair caddis April-October, and were integral in helping me hone my dry fly presentation. Any guesses?
