    Insect Identification needed

    I know I probably should not have kept/killed this insect, but I did not have a camera on me at the time. I knocked him into the water with the fly rod while casting. To me it looks like a stone fly, but I was told the water that I fish (Ramapo River) does not really have stone flies. Thoughts?Click image for larger version.

    Must have flown over from the Musky - lots of stoneflies there. Adult stones sure are meaty critters.

    I'm sure the Ramapo still has plenty of stoneflies which is what you have there, just not as many as a few decades ago before that watershed got built out.

    Re: Insect Identification needed

    Just because someone says it does not have a certain bug doesnt mean there isnt 1 single bug in that entire system. I live in Hamilton central NJ and there is a small creek behind my house called Doctors creek. It has heavy sewage affluent in it to the point that I would think no may flies would be around, but I saw a green drake coffin fly once and I always see BWOs. I think just about every body of water will contain almost every bug species just in some cases extremley low counts.

    That my friend is a South American Dick Slug. And its also why you always build a birds nest on the toilet seat.

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
