This topic is about the Mayfly Genus Serratella

Prior to recent revisions, this genus of elegant little dark mayflies with their small dark bodies, dark slate wings, and paler legs and tails was more important to anglers. What was the East's most significant species is now known as Teloganopsis deficiens (Little Black Quill). The only remaining species reported of value to the eastern angler is Serratella serrata (Little Sooty Olive).

These changes have had an even bigger impact in the West. The significant Summer hatching tibialis has been moved back to its old genus and is again called Ephemerella tibialis (Small Western Dark Hendrickson). The next most prominent species (though of only minor importance) is now called Matriella teresa and is the only recognized species of that genus in North America. The very minor species velmae has also been moved, and is now back in Ephemerella. This leaves only a few western species in this genus, and they are of no reported significance to anglers.

There is 2 more specimen...

Went over to the Dark Side the past two days. Thanks to all who helped. By the way, Jason, fished spinners also.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Yes, thanks to Taxon, Gonzo, JAD, and Konchu I am developing a functional knowledge of the bug and the ways fish respond to it. Results have been very satisfying. I'm even, as Gonzo can tell you, thinking of changing my avatar to Lou Streamwalker.

From what I witnessed the other day, That Name should be
Louis Stream-swimmer. I thought old Newt was trying to get a fishes eye view of the underside of Teloganopsis.

Careful, John, people in glass houses shouldn't throw rocks at their neighbors. Nor should people with stinky freezers.

Anyway, I took my little dip in the evening, after Darth was in the trees preparing for transformation.

Jason, it's a maroon 5wtsabre. Those 4wt's are no match for the weapons of the empire.
