This one was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.

I've recently participated in my first fly swap through another fishing forum. It has been a lot of fun tying flies for others and I want to see if people from troutnut would want to participate in a fly swap.
General idea would be 10-12 participants tie up some of their favorite flies along a theme (e.g. baetis, midges, streamers). They tie 1-4 flies for each participant (exact # depending on size/time for each fly), mail them out to me along with self addressed envelope, I divide up flies for each participant and mail them back out.
It's a fun way to get motivated to tie and to see what others can do. If there is enough interest, I can put together a more detailed rule set and we can decide on a theme.
