It is a willow fly, hex, or whatever else you wish to call them. They hatch on the lakes in this area this time of year, and the duns are sometimes that color.

I seem to remember that the Creel used to sell a Hex mayfly imitation.
If I could ever get back on the FB in between the generations and muddy inflow from the Lil pig., it might be some decent carp fodder in the evenings along the scum lines.

No, it is a mayfly, not a stonefly.

Thanks waterwolf. I guess it's all regional. The fly I noted is actually a stonefly, which out west (Rio Grande) is called a Willow Fly.

kytroutman,

Wilow fly is Yellow Sally, aka Little Yellow Stone, However, in the south some call the Hex, yellow drake etc for Willow fly. You are right though, most everywhere else, when someone is talking about Willow fly they mean a stone fly, but not in this particular case. Confusing to say the least.

Thanks Hans. I have seen them in Europe where they were called a Willow Fly and in some cases, a Golden Stonefly, like out West.
