    Hi UGAflyfisher
    I read some of your posts concerning Entomology. I enjoy several of the "bug" sites on the internet with Troutnut being my favorite. I'm trying hard to expand my knowledge of entomology past the names of flys without knowing what they repersent. Can you recomd a "field guide" (with pictures) that would help in this quest. I'd like to have one in my pack so when I encounter a mayfly dun/nymph I can't idenitify (which is most) other than it kinda looks like a ______ (insert any mayfly pattern name here)
    I'm an avid fly tyer and have recently scrapped my pattern sites and started looking atpictures of naturals to create my own recipes. One thing I discovered is that some of the standard accepted patterns do not look anything like the fly/stage they are supose to iminate. My first attempt was a BWO nymph which most all patterns use a olive thorax, to my suprise every picture I could of the nymph stage,Acerpenna,
    Baetis, Callibaetis, or Acentrella none had noticable olive coloration of the thorax or abdomen.
    Sorry to get so long winded, can you point my towards a good guide with pictures to help with mainly mayflies, but I'm interested in Caddis, Stoneflies, and the wide range of midges of which I have 0 knowledge. Thanks for any help you could give me.
