Quote from: Woolly Bugger on September 21, 2020, 08:26:30 AMFishing report: Know your bugs>>>How important is it for us to know about what insects are in the Bitterroot and when they hatch? I have always promoted the pocket guide for insects written and published by Orvis. A new book has been published, written by Paul Weamer, titled "The Bug Book: A Fly Fisher's Guide to Trout Stream Insects." This book promises us a complete guide to aquatic entomology for fly fishermen, covering all the important insects and their imitations for the entire United States. I don't know about you but I don't plan to fish all of the United States in the remaining years of my life. I plan to fish a few rivers in Montana and maybe Wyoming, but do I care about the hatches in New York or Maine? Are the insects the same there as they are here? The answer to these questions and others that you may have are in the book or books that have been published in the past. Insects won't evolve in my lifetime or in several lifetimes to come, but knowing about your own home river might be a challenge to the novice fly fisherman.https://ravallirepublic.com/news/local/article_67bc13b6-8bfb-5de7-b9a8-6e372eb3cad4.html
