Casey, take a look at the underside of this bug.

Touche, Taxon . . . I should have known better with you out their poised to strike at any hint of indecency.

For context, see Casey's question about blue wing olives in the "winter fishing - ice in the guides" thread. See, I wasn't being naughty!

Louis,
y'know, this spring i tied up a whole box of caddis from large to small, tan to black, and a few larvae and sparkle caddis as well. it was neat having whatever i needed, and after a while i knew which ones to make more of. this winter it's going to be a box of small mayflies with "blue" wings and every sort of body color, and some nymphs and emergers as well. and after a while...

thanks a lot for unravelling that little puzzle for me. those bugs i'd seen on the stream in cooler weather were seldom "blue"--and now i know why, or at least that it's really so.

Taxon, it's getting darker every day...;-)

I'm with you casey, if you fish more than one stream, you'll need any number of 8 thousand patterns/colors/sizes when someone tells you the "olives" are on.

I plead innocent; thought maybe you were referring to those thingamajiggies:
