    Late summer is the perfect season to knot on a terrestrial fly pattern, and there are so many good ones out there. Most of the time I stick to one of my parachute ants or a Harrop CDC Beetle. If I'm fishing a meadow stream a small hopper pattern often goes for a swim; but in a more canopied stream environment I really like this weeks fly, the "Letort Cricket" by one of Pennsylvania's legends Ed Shenk. Over the years these have caught a bunch of fish for me, and its a great fly where you find a deep run tight along the stream bank or a good undercut. If you haven't tried these tie up a few in sizes #10 to 14 on a Daiichi #1260 hook and enjoy yourself. This weeks pic is a pretty, wild fish from Monocacy creek in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania that couldn't say no to a cricket drifted under an overhang. Till next week ..................
