    I would guess a blue winged olive - Baetis.

    I would use a parachute Adams in the correct size. Better yet an OBA in the correct size, Olive Bodied Adams ala Norm Crisp.

    A bug? . Looks like Rip nailed it, with the slate drake.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    It'll definitely Catch Fish as long it's about The Same Size as The Fish are Feeding on.
    I find Synthetic Wool Can be substituted & used as Dubbing It's Cheaper & there are many colours available you just might have to occassionally add a little Floatant to keep it afloat Longer.

    I looked at the hobby lobby but they don't carry much wool yarn. Any other idea's where I can find it ? Do you just use the wool like chenille ?

    Looks like an Slate Drake (Isonychia) to me as well -- unless you have very small thumbnails ;-).

    There seems to be some controversy and / or regional variation in this, but I believe that most Isos hatch by crawling out of the water. Iso nymphs are very good swimmers and I've generally done much better with a nymph than dun during a Iso hatch.

    So I'd make sure you have some Iso nymphs as well. A large hare's ear will work, but that are lots of patterns out there.
