Ralph Cutter's Snail Article

A place to discuss techniques and rigging options for use in "non-mountain stream" areas such as lakes and warm-water areas, as well as non-traditional tenkara techniques such as nymphing.

Ralph Cutter's Snail Article

Although this article primarily deals with the fishing of Spring Creeks ( which differ from freestone streams in that they have cold, constant spring fed water supplies that are mineral rich and produce large quantities of aquatic insect life), spring creeks do have a number of things held in common with rich stillwater lakes, snails and their fly patterns being one of them. Alpine lakes are generally much more impoverished bodies of water than either spring creeks or rich lower elevation lakes are, but the usefulness of beetle patterns on nearly all mountain waters can not be denied, so here is the link to Cutter"s Snail article: http://www.flyline.com/entomology/snails/
