Example text

Beginners are often too busy learning about fly patterns and flyfishing techniques to have much time left to think about aquatic insects, and many anglers, beginners and experts alike, feel the study of aquatic insects is too complicated and too scientific. All the Latin names, hatch charts, and anatomical terms sound too much like a high school or college biology class. Spending the time to learn how to identify insects and learn about their behaviorjust doesn't seem usefulat first! But sooner or later there comes a day when fish are feeding heavily, and none of your flies work.

Normally the greatest amount of time is spent in the nymphal stage. In most cases, the entire cycle requires one year to complete, although this also varies with different species. ) Nymphs often look similar to their adult stage. As nymphs mature, the adult wings begin developing in stiff pouch-like structures on the thorax called wing pads. This is an obvious and unique characteristic of insects with incomplete metamorphosis. The wing pads on fully mature nymphs will be quite dark, almost black, in color.

Emergers. When nymphs or pupae reach their final level of development, they often become more active in the water as they get ready to emerge as adults. This activity further increases their availability to fish and their importance to the angler. The greatest availability often occurs during emergence when many nymphs and pupae rise to the surface. Fish take advantage of this activity by feeding heavily and selectively on the emerging insects. Page 28 Adults. Most adults offer themselves twice to feeding fish- first, when they escape the nymphal or pupal shuck on the water's surface, and second, when they return to the water to lay their eggs.
