A crayfish chews on a Hexagenia limbata nymph shortly after a small Hex emergence.  I didn't catch any fish, but playing around with my flashlight and camera in the rocks proved productive.  In this picture: Arthropod Order Decapoda (Crayfish) and Mayfly Species Hexagenia limbata (Hex). From the Namekagon River in Wisconsin.

Stillborn: In fly fishing, a stillborn insect is one which got stuck in its nymphal or pupal shuck during emergence and floats helplessly on the surface instead of flying away. It is a specific class of cripple, although it is sometimes used interchangeably with that term.

The rock wall across the picture is at least 15 feet away -- this is extremely clear water in a tiny Catskill stream.  This plunge pool to a large waterfall holds many brook trout in the 8-9 inch range but they hide too well to spot in this photo. From Mystery Creek # 89 in New York.

This little pool shelters some eager small-stream brook trout, though I caught or frightened them before I took the picture.  You can see this pool from above the water, too. From Mystery Creek # 89 in New York.
