I came into my office one morning in late March and found this little Baetis mayfly, or ”blue winged olive” as anglers know them, on my computer screen, tempting me to blow off work and go fly fishing. Oh, well, Windows is known to be buggy.

Hi again Paul,
There can never be too many opportunities to hang the “Gone Fishing” sign.  Thanks for relaying the Blue Winged Olive moniker.  We will link to the genus
Baetis on BugGuide.
