Wished the hind wing was in better focus, but I'm thinking probably B. tricaudatus (prev. B. vagans), a male subimago.

Kurt,

By any other name they would still taste as sweet...I'm getting tears in my eyes! I'm sitting here and these are already hatching in the stream somewhere! I better get cracking! :)

Now there's a gorgious color to match you hatch matcher! Thanks Eric!

Me too, Spence...

Thanks for the second photo, Eric. I don't see anything in it that would change my mind. Cool photo by the way! Vibrant colors and an interestingly rustic looking background. I've been scratching my head trying to figure out what the critter is resting on.:)

Ah, I'm not all that familiar with Renzettis, other than seeing them in shops and catelogs. I can recognize them easily enough with the whole vice in view, but that isn't quite the same as a close-up photo or tying flies for years on one inches in front of my face.:)
