Have you ever had a photograph ruined because of a million bugs flying in front of you? Well I can’t say that it had ever happened to me before last Saturday bu that day one of the largest hatches I’ve ever seen occurred. There were literally millions of caddis’s everywhere along the Madison River. You couldn’t look anywhere without seeing them and you couldn’t go anywhere without them being on you.
After a five days of cold wet weather the Spring insect activity finally picked up like it should be this time of year. Everything was stalling last week and Saturday it all came out. It was actually pretty entertaining to watch. Although, the fish didn’t seem to take any interest in it.
