Greg I do have to agree, one of the best days fishing EVER was with you and streamer under the Bridge. Unbelievable numbers of fish caught. "take these and fish there" was all that was said and needed.

DD, I don't use the word very much when writing/reporting, but the word "EPIC" seems very apt for the day you, Streamer, Pooky and myself fished. I don't think I'll ever forget that day and the fun we had. Good times, good people!

Here are some other shots of the small mayfly.
I thought I was looking at a BWO, especially since it was #22 or smaller.
What do you think?

Ben unless I am just blind the color reminds me more of a sulpher. Greg, yes that is an apt description of the day.

Bob I agree that it looks more like a sulpher, but....that small?
This is news to me.
Maybe our personal Trout Professor, GQ, will pipe in on the subject/

Ben,
My bug skills are pretty lame. But, that does appear to be a sulphur to me.

DD, loved the pic you posted ..... thank you very much.

Guys,

Sulphers come in many sizes and several color schemes. There is a sulpher that is actually orange. When it is coming off, an Orange Axe will kill them trouties.
