The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large brown trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.
how would you describe the BWO spinner body color?
if a PMD spinner body is, generally speaking, a rust color
I'd say brown, varying all the way from a light tan to blackish brown.
Actually, it has been classified as Drunella lata for about 35 years. :-)
Is this update something they did or was it done by others?
I think I have everything published by Caucci/Nastasi. They are sort of Herod to me. They consistently married a bit of science and scientific approach to fly fishing/tying.
I seem to recall, that in one of their later publications, they clarified the fact that it should have been Drunella. Drc still uses their original identification term, though.
I provide a service to flyfishers by publishing those taxonomic revisions which affect books in my extensive personal flyfishing entomology library
Wir danken Ihnen! :)
