Well here in Michigan we have Epeorus vitreus. Leonard says nymph 10-12 mm. Imago 9-11 mm.

Found in fast water.

I had a female depositing eggs in a shallow riffle on the downwind side of a tree years ago. Leonard has it listed in Crawford County where I usually fish, but have be able to ID only that once. She would hover over the broken water and dip her abdomen into the water.

Standard dry fly hook, whatever that is, in this case Mustad 94840 14-12 hook.

They have a body length of about 10 mm from the front of the head to the end of the abdomen.
