Bruce, I'll cast my vote with those suggesting Tricos. It might be worth noting that resting Caenis (duns and spinners) have the distinctive habit of holding their wings outstretched rather than upright. It's not that unusual to see a few Tricos in November, though I've never encountered them in "fishable" numbers. For example, Hall, Berner, and Cook (1975) studied T. atratus (now synonymous with T. allectus) in the tiny headwaters of the Mississippi (and nearby Birch Creek) in northern Minnesota, and said this:

A second peak emergence occurs in late August [after the first peak in mid-July] with occasional individuals appearing as adults into November.

Well there it is. And you thought we thought you were nuts. Now we're ALL going to be seeing Tricos in Nov. You can change the thread name now lol.

Now...what about December?

I sure wish I had a camera with me. I'll try to come up with another mystery tomorrow. I'm fishing the same area. Who knows, I may see sasquatch or a UFO.

Bruce,

If you are actually abducted by aliens its been nice chatting with you!

I'm still not completely convinced that aquatic insects (bugs in general for that matter) aren't really aliens and we just aren't hip to it...The only thing that has prevented them from completely over running the planet is that trout, birds, & bats have found them to be tasty...

Be careful out there man!

OK, Spence. I'll be careful, but I think it's too late.

Ha. Trust me on this one, Spence; we Homo sapiens are surely the late-arriving interlopers.

Roger,

You won't get any real argument from me on that point mister...:)
