Posts: 1Looks like an imitation would be about a #10 or #8 dark brown nymph pattern. I'm down here in north Fla and trying to match the hatch in the far north central part of the state, mostly to fool the bream. Any ideas or help would be appreciated. I found two patterns so far that seem to work- a little brown nymph with a rusty brown/orange thorax(maybe this is a good representation of the E. Temporalis), and a size 12 buzzer nymph with black body, peacock thorax and white breathing filament. The bream seemed to agree with that choice. I would like to try and copy more local insects as I figure out what they are.There are dragonflies and damselflies and mosquitoes. I could start there.

Hi Homer47-

Welcome to the forum, and congratulations on your first post. At 10-11 mm, mature Eurylophella temporalis nymph would be more like size #12. Good luck with your experimental development of patterns to attract Bream, and be sure to keep us posted.

I'm bettin a standard nymph shape such as a Hare's Ear with small diameter rubber legs does the trick on Bream.
