Here's another tiny mayfly; in this case a Caenis. I've encountered these on a few occasions in swarms. The nymphs crawl ashore to emerge so they are primarily available to the fish as spinners. I tie my imitations on a size 26 hook.

Accurately called "The Angler's Curse" in England.
Damn I hate Caenis.
We get lots of them at dusk on Georgetown Lake. Usually the fish have better things to do but occasionally they will fixate on the little bastards.
