Five hours into Ralph Cutter's two-day fly-fishing class, a woman's jaw goes slack. "My gawd!" she yelps. "You're really into this!" Cutter pauses. With a digital tensile scale dangling from one hand, the fishing line whose strength he is about to test in another, he lets a sliver of boyish grin crack his face. Other students, however, fix the woman with stares that say: "Duh!"

For someone whose family invented an insect repellent, Ralph Cutter is strangely attracted to bugs. But creating and properly presenting a fly that will fool a trout requires knowing some entomology. This illustrated guide is intended to help fly-fishers catch more trout by understanding what trout eat and how to match it with a fish-fooling imitation.

John Chapman is one of the few holdouts dotting the lake's shore on a cold, gray afternoon before Christmas. His line drifts with the current, this way and that, lazily cutting the murky green, its hook baited with a concoction of top designer baits: a yellow Crave Amino Egg and a Power Worm, doused with White Lightning Crave Nitro Grease. Then, in a flutter, the line flies from his spool. Chapman closes the bail, setting the hook, and the rod doubles over.

Time was when many Americans could stroll to the edge of town with a cane pole on one shoulder, throw a line with a worm on the hook into a fishing hole and pull out a trout for supper. It might never be quite like that again, but the California Department of Fish and Game will bring neighborhood fishing to parts of Los Angeles and Orange counties next year as part of its urban lakes program.

Activists attempting to foil the bighorn sheep hunt in the eastern Mojave Desert will be concentrating their efforts on one last hunter in the Marble Mountains--a plan that could bring them together with their leading adversary, Loren (Doc) Lutz. All five hunters assigned to the Old Dad Mountains-Kelso Peak sector southeast of Baker, Calif., had bagged their game by last Sunday night, and 2 of the 3 assigned to the Marbles farther south had been successful.

A California Department of Fish and Game internal memo obtained by CalTrout shows why the DFG has trouble fighting its own legal battles, despite a tough Fish and Game Code. The department long ago lost its own in-house lawyers and only in recent years was able to add three legal advisers to its staff. According to the memo from one of the advisers, Eugene V.

Bob Stockwell never had much to say when his friends brought up the subject of fishing. His biggest fish, a 3-pound rainbow trout caught in the Eastern Sierra, certainly would not raise any eyebrows. Then, the Newport Beach banker went to Cabo San Lucas. Stockwell, 45, has since returned and now has a story involving a giant marlin that few fishermen will be able to match. "We were trolling small lures for wahoo and striped marlin," he said. "That wasn't working so we changed to bigger lures.

California's third limited bighorn sheep hunt officially ended in the East Mojave National Scenic Area Sunday, and Department of Fish and Game workers, along with volunteers from the Society for the Conservation of Bighorn Sheep, moved in Monday to trap and transfer about 40 surplus sheep south to the Chuckwalla Range. Actually, all nine licensed hunters had bagged their trophies with several days to spare.

TROUT MAY NOT BE as good at minesweeping as dolphins, and their vocabulary may be a shade less than Koko the gorilla's, but nobody is going to tell me that these masters of evasion don't have a lot going on between the gills. Making people scramble from rock to rock to hover over pools with no fish in them is a sport for river trout. To have any chance at all, you have to cop to this: They've got the upper fin -- until you understand the mysterious world of the inner trout.

One of the nation's largest fish conservation groups has a message for those charting the future of the Sierra Nevada's Truckee River: give the "wimpy" trout a break. Trout Unlimited has urged more respect for the threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout, which once migrated 100 miles from a desert lake in Nevada up the Truckee River to Lake Tahoe.
