I was in Bozeman in the fall and the boys loved my " sexy" hair hopper ( their adjective) and other natural ties that I prefer as did the natives, much to their surprise.

I have been seeing the snow flies or as locally called, little black stoneflies on Penns Creek. They are about #18 in size but later on in April I see some larger #14's, locally called little brown stoneflies.

Is the little brown just a larger version of the little black or are they two separate bugs? My reference book, "Hatch Guide for New England Streams", only lists one called early dark stoneflies but does mention they range in size from hook sizes 12-18.

Many anglers lump the early stoneflies togther like the book you mention but they are separate species. From Troutnut, here are pics and info about them:

They are tiny, two tails, dark body, size 16 hook. I generally fish a dark 14 or even 12 two tail soft hackle.

Sandfly, what makes you say Allocapnia for the adult? I'm not sure but that adult looks pretty big, and A. aurora is a pretty rare stonefly and not documented in Berks County.
