Last Fall I wrote a piece about Blue Wing Olives (Baetis) mayflies. Additionally, you may have noticed I've been mentioning this little bug a lot lately in my fishing reports. The trout are really keying in on them right now, and in case you missed this article during the last go-round, here it is again for a little refresher.
This is sure to put a little smile on many of your faces. You know those times where you're in "the zone" when fly-fishing? Science may have just proven you really are. Whether it be making a cast expecting to get a bite, or perhaps setting the hook on a fish, only to think "I don't even remember seeing my indicator move". This certainly doesn't happen every single time I go fishing....but when it does, it sure is awesome.
Let's keep it rolling with the homemade Colorado footage!
