Caseless Caddis


Gammarus (note the subtle pink sheen - Superfine Light Pink;) )


Stoneclinger - heptogenidae


Mayfly nymphs






and at home tonight a Maybug or CockShaeffer

Those photos have come out remarkably well Hoppy...considering the amount of light there was when we carried it out.

Its amazing how the details are so much clearer when looking at the photos, it s hard to study them close when there bombing around everwhere in the tray.

I think we got a little carried away with the excitement of it all and almost forgot that there was also a little fishing to do.
