Found this guy on my shop a few weeks ago (near the spokane river) any ideas on an ID?
Hanford Caddis? I jest, but that is cool as all get out. It has pupils?
I cant believe my phone took a picture that well!
That is a great photo. I'd guess some kind of Lace Wing. Can't be from Hanford . . . there's no tiny dosimeter. Just sayin' . . .
Thanks Jim, just googled green lacewings, its a match...
Yup, a lacewing. A trout would find one of those guys tasty
Once maybe, but they would never touch one again after that. They are nasty smelling bugs that fish will shy away from. They are the type of bug that fish will taste and spit out. Leave it alone, otherwise you hands will smell like fermented moth balls for days.
