      Glad you enjoyed it. I really enjoy teaching people about fly fishing so I am putting as much info out as I can. I always seem to find someone new to fly fishing when I am out and will spend time teaching them and sharing knowledge. I need to post an older article for the beginner fly fisherman or woman.

          Nice article. Always wondered about flashes.
          We are the music-makers,
          And we are the dreamers of dreams,
          Wandering by lone sea-breakers
          And sitting by desolate streams;
          World losers and world forsakers,
          On whom the pale moon gleams.

                  Great article.

                  A question though... How about when trout jump clear out of the water like dolphins? Are they chasing emergers as well? I see that from time to time and once I had one jump up about 3 feet in front of me in murky water at IF.

                        Great question. Many fish jump, in recent years even great white sharks have been observed 'catching air' while hunting seals from the bottom. Dolphins do it to 1) breathe and 2) as a social and communicative behavior (unless trained, then it's simply to impress humans
                        I had a rather large brown jump really close to me at the river, startled me it was so loud and so close and it was clear he was coming up to check out my suspension device dangling in some rougher water.

                        My hypothesis would be that larger fish leave the water while predating smaller prey; and smaller fish leave the water while being predated on by larger fish. Haha

                          JerryG: Haha. That's a good one.

                          splatek16: It may make sense that they're going after something and something close to the surface and possibly fast moving... since they have to be so aggressive as to jump out of the water and make themselves so vulnerable. I am just wondering what it is they're after so that next time I see them jump out like that, I can switch up the rig to increase my chances.

                              If you start seeing this behavior, I will typically switch to a dry dropper rig with either a trailing midge, emerged or soft hackle. Another way to fish for them would be to use an indicator about 1-2 feet above your first fly On a 2 flag rig. I like to use a wool indicator if I fish this way.
