They're here!

The March browns were very much in evidence on the middle Eden this afternoon, offering the fish a meaty alternative to the large dark olives which trickled off after lunch. I snaffled a couple and took them home to photograph - a male and a female, although I had failed to notice that Mr MB was missing a couple of legs. So I had to settle for the above image only - female sub imago of Rithrogena germanica. A more handsome fly you will struggle to find around these parts.

Mighty impressed Matt. Although describing it as handsome must be a yorkshire thing!! Good work all the same.
