All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.

Pretty darned realistic if you ask me. You should put that one in a vial of alcohol and see how many entomologists you can fool!!

;oD

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

I did a nice olive damselfly nymph once (yeah, only one - I need to recreate it in multiples some day) on a streamer hook with a few strands of olive marabou for the tail/gills, olive floss body with thin silver wire for segmentation, olive hackle tied flat/splayed for legs, and burnt black mono eyes. It looked pretty good and I even think I caught a few fish on it (though I think they were warmwater species, but hey, they're found everywhere). Yours should be pretty deadly, especially with those realistic legs...go get 'em!
