Just not sure.. not even of the order.


Honoring Vets
order diptera was my guess (at first I had two..but that would have been a intra-order hybrid

Whatever they are (hymenoptera?) they're so ugly, creepy, and disgusting, they have to face in opposite directions when doing it.


Chucking a dead parrot on a piece of string!
Also known as the hawthorn fly in Europe. They like hawthorn trees. I used to fish a lake that had a large hawthorn tree on the shore. Around this time of year there would be lots of those flies bumbling around in it, and whenever the wind blew from the right direction they’d fall in the water. The trick was to stand around 50’ back from the bank so you couldn’t be seen, and cast a dry fly so that just the leader and the fly landed on the water.
