Posts: 287What is the name of the BWO hatching now? I have an eye problem or brain problem that doesn't allow me to match colors very well. I'm seeing it as a size 22-22 with a gray/brown or olive brown body; and gray wings.
Thanks

From what you are describing, I belive the name of that one is Steve

Awww, Brucie...You know I loves ya! Screw the rest of these Troutnuts...I think Antonio & Eric still care. :)

The fly is Baetis dinkus...Right? :) Its easy now since they are all lumped together by the Boys from Purdue...Just call it tricaudatus, or maybe Acerpenna pygmaea ( once upon a time Baetis pygmaeus)...Bruce. Did you lose the copy of Ann Miller's book I gave you in April? It probably was in your waders when you took that dunk in the Little J.

Posts: 287I've seen 40 insignificant posts discussing terga's and pronutums of certain bugs and I get nothing on a mainstream fly? You people are hard, oh, so hard!

Take a macro photo of the genitals.

Well Bruce, it's not hard if you give us something to go on. But without a decent photo or the actual bug, it's hard to say what it is with any kind of certainty. I would need a few more details. Did it have hindwings? # of tails? There a few genera and several species that your bug might be. And many have multiple broods a year. Color is not the best character to use. (especially since you are unable to decide on one). That being said, the most common little olive we have around here is Baetis tricaudatus. But I don't think anyone can say if thats what you are seeing. So like Spence said you could always go with that. If I were you I'd call it a #22 BWO. (or Steve)

Don't you need a microscope/camera-type thing to do that? I don't have a camera that small. Besides, how do you get them to spread their legs?

I'll try and get a picture on Saturday. Don't count on seeing any genitals, but your own.

Use force if you have to but I wouldn’t recommend that, you may find yourself facing sexual abuse charges. It would be best if you could get one to consent. Maybe offer a full centerfold in one of the fly fishing magazines as an incentive.

Maybe this one doesn't want their genitals exposed in a national publication. Not all of them are fond of that idea.

You guys are a hoot! Now the whole gang's taking part in unraveling a thread! :) This is anarchy!

Bruce...Antonio would probably send you a dozen if he really thought you'd tie the damn things on. ;)

Stick to your nymphing and maybe we can keep you from ending up in a jail cell next to that guy from Penn State.

PS. Why don't you return your calls?

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.
