Hello Ferne, we use a similar type of  fishing fly, a Woolly Worm,usually black with a mixed white feather but I have caught salmon on an all white one,thank you,  you have helped me with your photo.
White Woolly Worm,(I think), caterpillar phase of  the Yellow Woolly Bear moth, Spilosoma virginica, a widely distributed member in the Arctiidae family of caterpillars.   http://www.allaboutworms.com/

Very nice photo Jennifer, and a mayfly as you thought.
 Hexagenia limbata female, in the spinner, or imago stage. One of the burrowers and one of the large mayflies living in the nymph stage in the mud and sand in lakes and ponds. Brook trout grub for them as nymphs, amongst others, and inhale some of the mud giving them a bit of a muddy flavour, sometimes called mud trout.
(Thanks to Al Caucci and Bob Nastasi for their "Instant Mayfly Identification Guide." 1984)

Yep, bit of a mouthful, isn't it, sam. They are of the family 'sandpiper', but most folks just refer to them as greater yellowlegs….

I'm pretty sure this is mummichog (Fundulus heteroclitus) (reply...)
15 days ago Geoff made the following comment on the observation of Harp Seal (Phoca groenlandica) posted on August 08, 2016:
I'm guessing he couldn't resist a feed of capelin. Very healthy and well-fed looking animal, that's for sure. (reply...)
