1. Introduction

This data is a reflection of particular style of fly fishing which is mostly done DIY during travel over the last 20+ years. I come from water sports, camping, and aquarium hobby background. So, I am opportunistic angler who don’t put too much emphasis on specific sport fish, but optimize fishing session to cover as many varieties as possible. As a matter of fact, I consider my fishing to be Easter egg hunt that I can do by standing in the middle of nature’s aquarium. Rule is to record the latest addition or the largest replacement sample of each species with detail information including location and fly patterns. This post cannot hold the full size table, so please feel free to ask for more details.
