That Attenuata looks like it truly has the olive body, more so than any BWO pic i've seen yet! Wah tsize would that be tied in to imitate?

Thanks,

A-man,

The size of A. attenuata is usually around 6-7mm (or somewhere around a #16-18). However, this species is also notorious for creating confusion in fly-fishing literature and getting credit for being a more significant hatch than it probably is. I have some doubts that any of the mayflies pictured in the A. attenuata section are actually that species.

Adirman-

The male dun and spinner would have a body length of ~6mm, which would translate to hook size #18, and the female would be slightly longer.

EDIT:

Lloyd,

Oh shoot, we've done it again.
