Insect and Fly Reference

Over the years, I’ve accumulated a collection of photos of various mayflies, stoneflies and caddisflies. The majority of these were captured from rivers in southern Ontario, most notably from the Credit River (my home river). That said, they should still be a good representation of the same bugs on different river systems in Ontario and even in other eastern provinces and states throughout Canada and the US. Keep in mind that there may still be some slight colour and size variations from one system to the other.

I’ve found these photos to be immensely helpful when choosing flies to represent the various insect hatches on our rivers – whether it be through developing / tying your own flies, purchasing flies, or simply picking the best match from your fly box.
