These things are big and buzz around in decent numbers during summer months in the woods up there. Size 14# and 16 work well.

Where do these distribution maps come from? And how complete do you think they are?

A lot of scientific studies, there is some run over but the maps show the heavy concentrations of the insects. all data is compiled from different places and then put into maps.

Your probably right sandfly.

To imitate them I just throw a yellow elk hair caddis or a stimulator.

Sand, you should post a close-up of that nymph so we can see some detail. May be more appropriate in fly tying forum. From what I can see it looks great.

When I see a distribution map like that, I question them too. Spotty distribution over a wide variety of terrain. It just reeks of missing data. I'd guess that the species depicted in that map could be in every single county in PA.

Cept maybe Philadelphia, because the only animals that live there are rats and city slickers. j/k.

I tie up some down wing flies with yellow wings and body, I call them a yellow sally, but it's really a yellow caddis.
