This one pretty clearly keys to Kogotus, but it also looks fairly different from specimens I caught in the same creek about a month later in the year. With only one species of the genus known in Washington, I'm not sure about the answer to this ID.

anbody ever given thought to tying-bench cleanup by using one of those mini (micro?) vacuum-cleaners they make for electronic stuff like keyboards?
I'm married to the most forgiving wife in the world, she admires everything I tie with a that's nice, dear' and I want to keep her happy. that means no piles of clipped deer hair on the carpet, no stray feathers hanging out of the dog's mouth, etc...
I think I'll Google this item and see what's out there, just for grins.

I saw a balsa-bodied monstrosity from the '50's in a magazine recently, guess it follows suit that this 'fly' was dreamed up during the days of 'duck and cover' and radiation-spawned mutants all over the place.

Yeah, they wouldn't work anymore. Fish don't like Chernobyl ants or hoppers. Don't ever try to use them in Pennsylvania.
Oh, yeah, I guess you would have to throw them at SMB because we have no trouts in PA
All men who fish may in turn be divided into two parts: those who fish for trout and those who don't. Trout fishermen are a race apart: they are a dedicated crew- indolent, improvident, and quietly mad.
