Good photo tclenche. This one is the suborder Zygoptera of the Odonata, Dragonfly, family,  a Blue Damselfly sometimes called Blue Darter.
A nymph pattern fly is widely fished in ponds and lakes by fly fishermen and trout love them!
I wondered what that Mayfly was that Kenway showed recently, I thought it might have been an Isonychia,?

Thank you Frank for the information! Insects and freshwater life here in Newfoundland are two subjects i would like to see covered in books.

I too would appreciate some books on insects and fresh water life here. It seems the only interest is about the fish(and how to cook them)lol.
