Fly Fishing Video: "The Mayfly"

August 13, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

Some of us are not natural entomologists. We couldn’t find reason to pay attention in biology class, and we have a hard time with minutiae in general. But fly fishing draws us closer to insects and demands at least occasional attention to the details of insect life cycles.
Fortunately, there are folks like Ralph and Lisa Cutter who are both fly fishing school instructors and well-known cinematographers. This week we’re happy to help along the bug-challenged in our crowd by highlighting the Cutters’ video “The Mayfly,” which shows in great detail how burrowers differ from clingers and swimmers from crawlers.
