    image.jpeg just curious if someone can help with identification. North central Arkansas tailwater, Little Red River. January 10th , 1 pm, 45* air temperature. Several of these were landing on me but didn't see any in the air. No fish rising and couldn't see any hatch coming off , Thanks, Bill

    I would call it a little black stone fly.

    Hi Bill-

    I believe this stonefly adult to be a Needlefly (family Leuctridae) of genus Zealeuctra, which emerge in the winter (December - January) in Arkansas.
