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.

Hi everybody, I`m so happy to join your great site and to participate to the forum. I write an article for Bulgarian magazine about Mayflies, and I`m interested what exactly are these three, to insure myself that i won`t make anythig wrong with the latin names. So please help me identify them.

Not that it's even worthy of mention, but Ephemerella ignita was reclassified as Serratella ignita. So you say, then why mention it? Ah, good point, that. Hmmm. I seem to be talking to myself! Wonder what that means.

Stan, I've recently become curious about the markings of Eastern European Brown Trout. I understand that there may be some interesting differences from country to country. If you have any photos of fish, I'd be glad to see them also. Best wishes, and tight lines to you.

Rest assured that even if you've developed the habit of talking to yourself, many of us are listening and hanging on your every word. I wondered about revisions to the names of European mayflies when I tendered my guess (and it is strictly that), but I knew I could count on you to update the nomenclature. Thanks, pal!
