Can anyone tell me the subspecie of the first (top) Mayfly Dun on the webpage "Mayfly Dun to Spinner Illustrated"? I'm kinda new at this, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Doyle

Jason states there that its the Leptophlebia cupida..."Black Quill" or "Borchers Dun"...etc.

Thanks oldredbarn. I guess I should read a little closer from now on.

Thanks.

That's ok! If you look at the few photos showing today at the top of the "Most Recent Posts" the same fly is resting there next to the seam of my waders, which unfortunately the auto focus liked better than the fly, and we had another recent post where someone was asking about a fly that was also L cupida...When they are around the fish enjoy them because they are a nice sized mouthful. If you have a Borchers Parachute say size 10 or 12 you are in the ballpark and should have some fun.
