Don't really know what kind of mayfly it was. If it was a "Sulfur" as some guys said it was a species with which I'm unfamiliar. Light yellow wings, light yellow body, three tails, small red eyes, about a size #15. Blanket emergence!~ So many bugs that the trout just lost interest and stopped surface feeding as I'm assuming there was a subsurface glut of swimming and emerging nymphs.



Anyone know why my images are being deleted - I see it has happened in a number of my older post.

Nice fish there Matt! You may have been unfamiliar with whatever bug was on the water, but you did something right! Sweet...
