As somebody who is somewhat new to I have learned the technical aspect of Fly Fishing, but I am still learning what alot of the Flys are. So when I am out on the river and somebody says there is a hatch of red quills or the March Browns are emerging right now I am kinda scratching my head like everybody is speaking greek. I was able to snag this fly by the river today and I was curious to know if anybody could help me identify this. It was caught on the Farmington River in Connecticut in the evening.

This is male Callibaetis dun, aka "speckled dun." It's interesting that you found it on the Farmington; they are usually more common on ponds and lakes (still water). Did you see many of them?

We see them on the slower stretches of the zhenry's Fork if I'm not mistaken.
