We have a couple of "most interesting" threads, but I'm wondering if we can sift through from time to time and find the threads that concentrate information on hatches and flies for them. I know there's a very good Grannom thread or two, and some very good information on Tricos. Well, I'll just throw this on the wall and see what sticks. I'll try to find that Grannom thread (or a couple of them) to start.

Here's an olive thread disguised as a trico thread. We have another thread on summer olives that I'll try to find.

Here's the other summer olive thread I was thinking of. Then perhaps on to Tricos. Though I should have tracked down a few more Grannom threads first. Perhaps later.

More grannoms, this time larvae and some more fly patterns. Eric has a great photo of a grannom adult with a cut away wing, but I can't find the thread. Perhaps he'll locate it for us.

Interesting Green Drake thread. For photos, the Troutnut Encyclopedia is the best place to go generally. But there are some amazing photos scattered through the Forum threads also. Here are some of them:

Wow. What a great site! What a compilation.

Here's a timely one on Baetis:

Here's one I liked that considers eclectic feeding:

I think I cryptically titled the thread "Grannoms" :)

Here is one I found particularly interesting, especially Paul's mention of Eurylophella duns.
