    I've never fished the Webber, but if it's a weekend date, the Provo can get pretty crowded. It has a lot of easy drive in access and isn't a very large stream, just a heads up.

    We used to get a few of them in Butte Creek close to Chico. They are cool to look at under a microscope.

    Just my opinion, I would recommend the vice be rotary as well. Doesn't have to be full on rotary as in you can wind thread on by spinning it, but I've found being able to look at all sides of a fly...

    I like borax, and you should scrape off any fat as well. Pretty much what Bill said, nice dry place, just make sure the beetles and moths don't get at it while it dries.

    Most likely it is a splittail and they can get quite large for being a "minnow". It is used as a common testing species for water quality stuff here in CA, and some of the broodstock I've seen in...
