Don't Be 'Yellow' About Throwing Little Stones

Yellow Sally Stonefly Hatch

#16 Headlight Yellow Sally

Yellow Sally Stonefly Adult
All around the streams in the West there is a prized hatch that sometimes flies under the radar of many competent anglers. The Little Yellow Sally is a distinct hatch that can mark the start of the summer season almost as well as the hours of daylight. This insect is in stark contrast to what most anglers envision when thinking about stonefly adults. Most of these adults fall in the 5/8" to 1 1/4" in length. Although small in size the hatches can be pretty heavy and provide enough protein to have trout truly key on Yellow Sally patterns. Look for these little stoneflies in the coming weeks on your local waters.

Salmon Flies Ah Go Go!!

Many of the rivers in the FlyCurrents network are having or beginning to experience the B-52's or Salmon fly hatch! Throwing size #4-#6 dries can be life changing if you've never experienced it. Do some simple research and get out on the river(s)!
