J and I visited an old friend Saturday. It was a lovely day. The temps were awesome. Air and water. We fished a lower stretch that he had never fished - which boggled my mind. We got into brookies right away.

We were out and hiking back down about 3:30.

Jacob needed to rest up for his sketchy trip with Ken the next day.

Wife and girls are out of town for the week so I sent them off Saturday morning and Doug and I went and hit the local brookie stream.  Rain had the stream at a perfect level, especially for late September.

Damn that pizza does look good.


The Dude

Nice trip, boys.

Jacob, are you certain on that sulfur ID?

Doug, can you hit me back with the tree ID request I sent you?

Pizza = baller.  But if you want to invoke some Emeril Legasse and "kick it up a notch", throw some shrimp and bleu cheese on there next time for some next level bliss.

I think it's a female light cahill, but mudwall will correct us all.

Great report!

Yes, I believe you are on the right track --- some kind of "Cahill" (Heptageniidae), perhaps Leucrocuta.  Specimen is in such poor shape from J's ham-handed collecting methods, who the heck can correctly ID this critter?

Mayflies are like a women's breast.  Follow this lead when collecting!

In the broadest terms in the fly angling vernacular, "sulphur" could be considered correct also.  Challenge of angler common names = approximately a dozen critters called "sulphur".    This use to infuriate me in my younger years; now I don't give a shit.

PS:  Had to look up "Emeril Legasse".  Can't believe any male with a functioning penis would be familiar with this individual.   Dude's Man Card has been revoked for 3 months.

I see a yellow mayfly and just assume Sulphur.  Looking at it, it is too yellow for a Sulphur.

And shrimp and bleu cheese would be interesting  V:; 


Phil

Fine brook trout there!  :bow As far as I'm concerned, if it's a yeller mayfly, mighty as well call it a sulphur.

Sorry, I cannot refuse comment.

Big J is a fine angler, one of the most persistent anglers I have ever encountered.  I wish I had his angling drive, and the drive of folks like Doug, Ken, Boss, etc.  BUT, Big J's talents of biological description and ecological search image are limited to seeing a 6" brookie and its orientation in a translucent 30 centimeters of mountain stream water.  This is no fault of his.  His "yellow/sulphur" comment is what you get when you are trained number-cruncher transplanted to the wilds.

I really regret putting the word Sulphur in my TR.
