Thanks again to you guys who replied
I wouldn't over-think it too much... sometimes the more detail that goes in, the less lively the imitation looks like in the water. But if you really want to go nuts, here are the side-by-sides;

Eastern March Brown (Maccaffertium vicarium)

Keep in mind that "sulphur" is the name of a fly pattern, and it covers about half a dozen yellowish mayflies over three (3) families
