NE Anglers, have you seen Pocketguide to Pennsylvania Hatches by Meck and Weamer? It's new and chock full of great photos. I haven't checked it out thoroughly but they do call cornutas latas. I hope there hasn't been a change in this direction. No Darth Vadar, either. Which is fine with me. Mum's the word, John. :) Thanks again, Gonzo.

Louis-

Haven't seen it yet, but I suspect that, given the lead time for publishing, or just owing to careless taxonomic proofreading, the book is not reflective of the most recent taxonomy concerning Drunella cornuta and D. cornutella. Frankly, it is extremely difficult to keep up with the changes, even on a website.
Best regards,

Another error I spotted. They call the Letort a premier stream for Tricos. Trikes have been on the decline on the Letort for years. I don't know of many who fish the hatch there now. At last report they were spotty at best.
