I thought I would share some of my pictures of mayflies on the Clinch and a few videos as well. I hope you can use it to help guide your pattern selection or to help you visualize the trout's perspective.:smile:

Feel free to add your own pictures, ideas, or stories.

My intent is to create a collaboration of mayfly information for others to enjoy.

Excellent shots. I am having trouble with the macro shots or we could compare nymphs from the Caney. Oh well, I'll try it again today.

For close up shots on the water; I set to #1 Macro + timer and hold it really steady.:smile: I try to take several as many are usually blurred. For shots of my samples; I use a tripod and the same procedure.

Great shots. Really shows what could trigger a trout's attention to a fly pattern.
