I fished Tricos up to the 9th and 10th of October. The following weekend, Oct. 15 and 16th, I went fishing again and I stopped to check on the tricos. They were in the air, but there were fewer of them.I decided before I left the house that morning that I was going to nymph that day so I move on to another part of the stream. I believe I could have fished them that day.

Tony and I had a great time this year. We had a blast fishing the day the olives and tricos showed up together. Of course, not being much of a dry fly thrower, if he wouldn't have been there it would have never dawned on me to look for olives. I learned something that day.

Way cool, Bruce. Tight lines.

Why didn't you give the tricos a go if you had earlier success with them?

Personally, I don't ever tie on a fly until I've prospected the water to hopefully see what's happening fly-wise. The exception being my small mountain streams that can't support an extended large hatch.

Just me, you do what you feel is best.

BobbyG: Quite frankly, after fishing tricos and olives for about 2 months I began to get bored with dry fly fishing. I missed nymphing and I decided that's what I was going to do that day. I'm like you I usually look around to see what's going on, but I made up my mind I wanted to nymph. It's not always about catching every last fish. There are times when I'm catching fish consistently with one or two certain flies and I clip them off and experiment with other flies. That's part of the fun. Thanks you for allowing me to do what I feel is best.

Lastchance,

I apologize if I offended you.

That certainly was not my intent. I agree the fishing experience is indeed more than catching fish. I personally just like to give myself the optimum fish-catching edge.

I love fishing the dry fly and suppose I overlooked others that are not so consumed with them.

As I said, just me, and when it comes to the dry versus a nymph, I personally will fish the dry every time.

Best fishes for the balance of the year!

I wasn't offended. It would take a lot more than that to offend me.

Hmmmm. Sounds like a challenge, Bruce. Now, I'm sure one of us Troutnuts is up to the task. I'd take a first crack, but is seems that should be left to Tony. :)

All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Uh, oh. The big guns are out now. Pretty soon I expect someone to triple-dog dare someone else to a fishing contest.

You can just about tell when a thread has run its course...It just sort of poops out!

O poop. I guess you're right, Spence.
