I was at a hold just below Idahna in June, beautiful sunny day with a hatch going on. And the water had a couple slack spots, but the funny think was. I didn;t see a single fish rise. Strangest thing evr.

Not really that funny. A bright sunny day with little wind chop means fish fear teh overhead predators an dont want to rise.

Nonsense. You need to try one of my olive crystal buggers.

I didn't realize those were Drys. Oh I get it they come out of the water after them as you are casting.

I'm tell'n ya man, those bugs are killers, they never have to hit the water. Trick is to shadow cast them like Brad Pitt did in that movie.
