Paraleptophlebia adoptiva on Dickinson Creek
Although its not yet trout season, I enjoy being witness to the interactions of fish and fly. Yesterday PARALEPTOPHLEBIA ADOPTIVA were hatching on a small stretch of dickinson creek. I especially enjoyed watching salmon parr viciously attack the insects at the surface. This fly was a size 14 and is matched by a blue quill. On the way home I bike past the Cranberry Bog in East Hampton and noticed some small bluegills active along the sides. I knew this day would come, and I lined up my $350 St. Croix 3wgt and threw foam beetles at the little fish. It must have looked stupid, but it sure was fun to catch a fish on every cast.
