Richard Formato notes that the approach of fall seems to heighten the activity of all terrestrials, especially beetles. “Beetles works best when dead drifted, with a mended line off the bank. One of my many weaknesses is moving my fly too much. If you have a great drift, leave it alone. A ‘dead’ beetle will soon be a ‘fed’ trout.” In the Roanoke (Virginia) Times.
