Blue-winged Olives
Baetis

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

Male Epeorus pleuralis (Quill Gordon) Mayfly Dun Pictures

I kept this specimen after photographing it and it molted into a spinner in perfect condition, which I photographed here.

This mayfly was collected from Dresserville Creek in New York on April 30th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on May 3rd, 2007.
