Things you never hear a southern say:

Did I cook the green beans too long?
Is my hair too big?
Do these jeans make my butt look too little?
Duct tape won't fix that.
You can't feed that to the dog.
Wrasslins' fake.
Who's Richard Petty?
I just couldn't find anything at Wal-Mart.
Trim the fat off that steak.
I don't think banjo goes good with that music.

Is my fly too big?

I see a free roaming caddis in there. They don't live in homes of any kind and they also eat other caddis larva.

NIce photography also

I actually thought of you as I did the autopsy...I thought: "JT will like this. He will know what these are..."
The bugs in the right top corner on the last photo are the ones I am unsure of...the worm-like ones. Some were green w black heads. Others just dark olive-brown.
Btw, I learn alot doing autopsies....kinda hard putting it all back in though..

What stream / river did these come out of ? Some of the scud like critters might be sow bugs

JT is right on abut the free living caddis larva! How many fish do those come from? I know of a bait that will work with that many scuds in da water!

One fish
Two fish
Red fish
Blue fish.

The answer is two nice bows. Fresh. The scuds/sow bugs were the most recent entries into their GI tracts.
SoHo

AND...you showed me how to tie the pattern @ L&T a couple of years ago. I'll never forget it.
THANKS,

bbbbbb
