I've never witnessed one of these massive evening hatches yet...all I've seen are a few scattered flies of various sorts. There is one that I saw 2 weeks ago that's bugging me (no pun intended), because I can't seem to determine what exactly it was. It was just about sunset on Straight Fork, almost at the park boundary. There were a lot of small grayish mayflies dropping eggs, but the one that caught my eye was a very large, very light green mayfly - it had to be at least a #12, maybe larger. I'm assuming it was a dun, since the wings were opaque. None of the pictures I have been able to turn up on the 'net quite match it...if anyone might know what it was, I would appreciate it, if just to settle my curiosity.
