This is a really neat video that shows the larvae and then the appropriate fly. Very well done.

nowhere is so sweet, as the bosom of the vale where the bright waters meet.

FYI ID for bugs on the video in order of appearance:

1. Scud - Common in limestone streams. Most around our parts are a little more olive/gray colored.

2. Rhyacophila Larva - Green sedge (caddisfly). Common in PA. The green larva is a killer pattern (or a green weenie ).

3. Chimarra Larva - Little Black Sedge (caddisfly). Yep, that orange colored larva turns into a little black caddis in the spring. Larva pattern is definitely worth fishing.

4.Early Brown Early Black Stonefly (various species) - Common in Pa. Fish both nymph and dry version when they are on and in the stream.

5. Isonychia nymph - Very common in PA. Nymph and dry should be in your fly box. They are broods that also hatch later in season - late summer - early fall. Very important, must have fly.

6. Ephemerella Subvaria nymph - Hendrickson! Soon / now! in many streams. Have a nymph and dry female (Light Hendrickson) and male (Dark Hendrickson).

7. Various Dace and Sculpins (baitfish). Always carry streamers to imitate native baitfish.
