    Default MayFly on the Shop wall yesterday

    Just a so-so pic of a mayfly on the wall at the Ted Fay Fly Shop yesterday.
    Maybe a Paraleptophlebia or some kind of Baetis?
    Anybody got any other ideas?
    Interesting to note that to my eyes the bug looked mostly gray but in the picture it shows more as brown.

    When a fly fisher sees a mayfly by a porch light they get excited but most people have no idea the significance is to us.

    Great photo......
