There's a small nymph in the last picture of your hendrickson post. Right by the stonefly.


Thanks for this Sandfly. I think most people have some basic knowledge of adults, but nymphs can be very tricky for most. I know I can tell just a few apart, but my knowledge is lacking in this area.

Awesome , for me it's all about the bugs. I don't like to fish attractor patterns nearly as much as a look alike bug specific to the water I'm on. The size12 stones were heavy on the Lehigh but no risers, they must not taste as good as the giant stone nymph they were devouring. No black woolly in my box
