    very interesting. This is one bug I have never seen before, unusual color for sure.

      That is the Golden Stone(fly)…coming sooner will be the Salmon Fly/California Stone which is much bigger. A frenzy of fly fishers, stoneflies and trout converge in Western Rivers…the Golden was on the Deschutes River in Oregon. Arkansas’ White River is world renowned for Brown Trout fishing. I am not sure if a stonefly hatch/emergence takes place on the White R.

        Lived on the White River. that flows through Batesville, Arkansas years ago. Spent many hours on the banks of the White River, have never seen the stone fly on this river. I may have just missed seeing it. My husband has fished the White River often.

Sic Semper Tyrannis

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
