    The Lineup

    WE'VE BEEN SELECTED
    It's Like The Mambo
    but without the gyrating
    AN AUTUMN RITUAL
    -------
    .. There are Baetids on the Firehole River, they are on the Madison River, (upland & lowland,) they are on Duck Creek, they are on Cougar Creek, they are even on the Gallatin River and the Gibbon River. There are hungry fish everywhere.
    .. The sage advice on Baetid imitations from the neighbors catching fish : "flies as big as you can get away with." That suits us just fine. We're going to start with a size 16 and work down.
    .. The experts have exterminated all the fish on Nez Perce Creek, Iron Spring Creek, and the Little Firehole River: "all done for the season," they proclaim.
    .. Spread the word far and wide, make sure that everyone knows about it: we are, on the other hand, going to visit the disappearing and exterminated fish of Yellowstone Park. We'll let you know if they like the rain and snow.
    -------
    IGNORE THIS WATER ON THE GIBBON RIVER
    IGNORE THE DARK WATER UNDER THE BANKS
    THE FISH ARE ALL GONE
