"... been fishin'...:)"

AND??? Results? Posting seems to have slowed down on this site as of late, wondering if everyone else is busy fishing too...I myself am trying to catch up after working two jobs most of the summer...and my main time is still evening into sunset, that's when I am seeing the most flies and as Kurt has informed me in another thread my beloved Light Cahills are still showing up at dusk!

Concerning Tricos, I have never run into them, though I have been informed that they are a morning hatch, a time of day I am rarely on a trout stream just because so much of the hatch activity around here is in the evening (though I will throw hoppers in the afternoon!). I may not also have fished waters that contain them. Are they found everywhere or have more exacting habitat requirements with regards to river size (I fish small streams) or etc.?

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

They are found in both large and small streams, but not all streams have them. Ask at local fly shops for the nearest location?

My best trico fishing (browns 12"-18") came on a feeder stream to Michigan's AuSable. The average width was (maybe) 20'. Very heavy spinner falls with lots of nice fish feeding.
