      Matter O' Fact Geoff,

      I just heard through the grapevine, that it was in fact a Mayfly
      which Sub caught his trout on :):):). Ask him to send you some picts
      of them trout(made my mouth water)....

      Like me daddy taught me - "Match the Hatch" and we always tied our
      own flies - he would even bring his fly tying kit to the streams and
      tie em stream side to match the hatch.

      Vino es Veritas,
      Jim.

      Hi Rim,
      It's about that time of the year,end of April and the start of May
      and all. So i'm betting it was a May Fly. My biggest was 2.5 pounds
      (I thought it was a monster)in 6" of white rapid water when I was 15
      yrs old netted in an old orange onion bag spread with a wire coat
      hanger on the end of a cane as a
      net. Had to tie my own as well, money was tight then.(we wus' poor
      and I think we wus' happy well I was) I had 4 brothers
      and 3 sisters and all money went into the home food kitty and when
      everyone
      was feed you got some back
      Geoff
