The legendary Rock Creek salmonfly hatch happens in May. But like fishing in general, the salmonfly hatch is never a sure bet. I went out to find these magnificent bugs and got rained on and catapulted downstream on a runoff current. But it was ample opportunity to marvel at the incredible life journey of a prehistoric insect. The story ran in Rhapsody, United Airlines’ first-class inflight magazine. You can read it online.
