    Re: Mr. Cahill and the Sulphurs

    That bottom picture is awesome..

    I experienced a decent small and large golden stonefly hatch on a small wts after work...I thought it was too late for them?? I assumed the small ones were Sulphurs at first until I caught one.

    The coloration on the breast of these rainbows is crazy. I'm not sure you could call this a double bow

    Landed this on 6x...from an unstocked trib to the Delaware. No idea where it came from, but had beautifully-spotted fins and fought like hell.

    This fish was re-visited. It kicked my ass by taking me out to my backing during higher flows in our first encounter. I swore it was over 20".

    Holdover rainbow, NJ.

    Just located some huge spawning smallmouth. Hooked one on a sucker spawn that I had in my box but it thrashed my 6x ( I didn't think too far ahead ). This smallie was bigger than any bass I have ever seen. Hopefully I can post a picture of some soon.

    Re: Mr. Cahill and the Sulphurs

    I believe your common names used are correct. Looking at the one at the bottom the Cahill that looks like this one from my collection. Mine is a
    ( Maccaffertium modestum / rubrum ). The Sulphur one or the second photo appears to be ( Ephemerella invaria ). The midge well I know nothing about them.

    Re: Mr. Cahill and the Sulphurs

    I believe that is a little yellow quill (Leucrocuta hebe)
    Where did you take that Pic FF?

    Re: Mr. Cahill and the Sulphurs

    Well if we like a test !!! which I do !!! lets do it.

    Based on what I can make out from this one photo there several potentials. It appears to be a male imago of the genus Maccaffertium or Stenonema. Stenonema femoratum has the dark infused stigmatic stain that we see in the upper area of the forewing it does suggest Stenonema femoratum. However I don't know where the sample was taken from, what the size is, or the time of session that you collected it. So because Maccaffertium pudicum can also look like this it makes knowing for sure very tough without dissection.

    However I believe I have seen this photo before on Trout nut with a Stenacron carolina that I diagnosed ??? If so I now believe that Kurt cleared this one up as
    M pudicum.

    It is the same photo I just checked, Ha "JohnNY"

    Re: Mr. Cahill and the Sulphurs

    Notice the body posture is incorrect. It is a Maccaffertium pudicum. Leucorcuta are more closely related to Stenacron. Kurt, Taxon, and myself agreed that this one is pudicum on Trout nut.
