The Specimen

Tricorythodes (Tricos) Mayfly SpinnerTricorythodes (Tricos) Mayfly Spinner View 9 PicturesI photographed this Trico alive, although it didn't have much time left. These things die very quickly after they mate and it's hard to rush them back to the studio.

These Tricos are found on most reservoirs in the Great Basin. They come off the water late in the afternoon and early evening. They pull out of their subimago shuck on any object, cars, shirt sleeves, eye glasses, or rocks. They appear as clouds on most reservoirs and stimulate an Alfred Hitchcock-like feeding frenzy with the fish. They are short lived but what an impact. This hatch lasts for several weeks here in the Great Basin.
A good spent wing example can be found at Just2ty4.com.

How interesting. I always associate them with streams and had no idea they hatch in lakes. Tight lines,
