This is a compilation of columns written for California Fly Fisher magazine, and all too frequently I reaffirm or rediscover my own discoveries. I’m afraid to count the number of times the reader is urged to coat his wet fly with dry-fly floatant. I could dream of something else to say, but in my experience, the value of a shimmering nymph bears repeating over and over again. Some of what you read in this book will be wrong or at least open to interpretation. Error is almost always the result of attempting to fold the behavior of fish and their foods into neat factoids without providing wriggle room for regional variances or individual behavior.
There is nothing quite so humbling as traveling to the Fall River to fish the Hex hatch, or going to the Upper Sac to meet the golden stones, or even visiting the Truckee to experience its green drakes, only to find that the trout are swimming around these giant morsels to sip the scads of little stuff on the water. Not one angler in a hundred will happily accept the obvious. It is the reason I quit being a fishing guide. I’ll never forget the frustration of dealing with a client (we’ll call him Mortimer) who came to the Truckee expressly to fish the green drake hatch.
Regardless of which habitat the larvae chose to occupy, all entered a period of pupation from which would evolve the adult form. Some pupae, such as the cocoons of moths, remained tightly fixed to a single location; others, like the caddisfly pupae, could move about quickly and efficiently. Unlike the adults of incomplete metamorphosis, which looked closely akin to their nymphal selves, the adults of complete metamorphosis were limited only by the whim of evolution. Creatures as diverse as swallowtail butterflies and carrion beetles shared the common bond of complete metamorphosis.
