BUGS, part one

In his videotape, Nymphing, Gary Borger quotes a wise man as saying, “It’s best to begin at the beginning.” The beginning for fly fishermen is knowing about what trout eat. So, let’s discuss food organisms.

Many anglers have a casual understanding of Mayflies, Caddisflies, Stoneflies, Midges etc. But that’s as far as it goes. They find the extraordinary number of bugs overwhelming so they fish attractor patterns.

I suggest you familiarize yourself with one stream. Learn its’ biomass and the stream life of other waterways will fall together.

Let’s compare aquatic insects to members of the animal family.
