Foisting the Salmonfly Canard

While it may be true that salmonflies share something in common with cinder and palolo worms, pass crabs, guppy hatches, and trico spinner falls — namely the ability to thrash us into a Quixotic frenzy — it’s also true we’d rather be there than not. “Trouble with big, juicy flies is that they’re like all those other larger-than-life events we dream about, yet only seldom are allowed to touch. Something generally gets in the way: Too much sun, howling wind, water the color of a mocha milkshake. We get there too early or too late, or find a small army bivouacked in the only spot where there’s real action.” Charlie Meyers in the Denver Post.
