Looks like a common clinger to me especially if the body is really flat. Next time you find one go to touch it and if it moves sideways and/or backwards like a crab it is definately a clinger which will turn into a Mayfly.

Default Re: is this a mayfly nymph?

I only started looking at pics of real nymphs about 6 months ago (I think it
was on the troutnut site). I used to wonder why patterns like the PTN were
tied the way the were, but that pic makes it obvious. It would seen like
some extra legs behind the thorax might not be a bad idea, and maybe I'll
try it......
