Happy Mother's Day Caddis

I have waited til Sunday evening to post this, so I hope I'm not giving away anybody's perceived secret, but the Mother's Day caddis are ALL OVER the Yellowstone (and I've heard they're starting on the Madison). I spent my past two days floating caddis dries and nymphs through the Yellowstone's surprisingly clear water. Floated the bird section both days, and while the bugs were thick, the fish were not up on them like I would have liked. But they were rising sporadically in most places and heavily in the foam back eddies. Ultimately, both days were outstanding and an absolute blast. Unfortunately, I'll bet the Stone's only got hours before she's blown out for the duration. At least we got a couple days in. Too bad it doesn't work out so nicely every year.
