July 15, 1998: Larry Barnwell writes: I grew up in western North Carolina & I used to see Lightning bugs all the time. I since have moved to Montana just north of Yellowstone Park. Several years back, I think it was the summer of 1994, I spotted some lightning bugs along the east fork of the Gallatin River just north of Bozeman, Montana. I had been fishing & as I was walking back to my car I saw them. I wonder what kind of fly they would make for fly fishing. It would make them easier to tie on in the twilight hours. I haven't seen them in Montana since that night, but I'm visiting North Carolina tonight & I saw them which sparked my sister and me to try to find out more info. We looked up lightning bug & firefly, but nothing pertinent came up til we typed in lampyridae.
