    Not sure what this is - would have said Flat Bodied Heptageniidae Nymph at first glance but the macro lens allows you to see the proportions better, which don't appear to be correct for that conclusion; first one of these I've come across whilst sampling. Any pointers please?

    Afon Teifi, what fly?

    Helo folks, Off to Ceridigion in August - if you had to choose a fly for Sewin, which one would you stake a night of zzz's on? I'm going to tie a few 'essentials' but have never tackled a Sewin fly before, so it would be wise to keep it suitable for dummies :D. Ddiolch, STD.
