Fishing Flies: Late Summer "Swan Song" for Terrestrials
Richard Formato notes that the approach of fall seems to heighten the activity of all terrestrials, especially beetles. “Beetles works best when dead drifted, with a mended line off the bank. One of my many weaknesses is moving my fly too much. If you have a great drift, leave it alone. A ‘dead’ beetle will soon be a ‘fed’ trout.” In the Roanoke (Virginia) Times.
