    No pictures / will not open

    You should use an on-line photo hosting site like flicker or photo bucket and load the images from there.

    Pictures are up; the first is a caddis fly and the second a may fly. Someone may be able to get species specific but if I were fishing I'd use a buff or tan caddis & a large Light Cahill for the may fly hatch.

    You're Welcome,

    I lived right down in Newnan area for about 20 months back in 1990 / 92. I enjoyed my time in Georgia very much.

    The first seems a bit odd for a caddis, perhaps more closely an Alderfly? Second appears to be a March Brown Mayfly or something similar, right time of year, and about the right size.

    I agree, something is just off about those eyes... they seem too big for a caddisfly. Maybe not though.

    I'm going with Ard on that second specimen; Stenacron interpunctatum (female, dun)... aka Light Cahill

    Just curious, did these insects come from a warmwater river?

    I've shown those same pictures to several folks at the local fly shop and they said the first one was a caddis (they also showed me how to tie a few!) I have not used the caddis patterns yet but I have used a griffins knat as a substitute with very good results. Strangely I have not seen any fishing rising to the mayfly.

    I just searched the alderfly and I don't believe it's that. The alderfly almost looks like a stonefly, just shorter and more broad. Plus it seems thier eyes are not that large
