Terry informs me that he read there are really no "march browns" east of the rockies. I know that in my early spring antics for trout in the past, there are two bugs on the shore - black gnats galore and a brown insect resembling a mayfly but without the long tail. Due to the popularity of the march brown among the trout afficionados as well as the hare's ear, I assumed the insects I spotted were the reputed namesake.

If not, then the question remains... what were they?

As I alluded, the only real insect study I have done is the giant october caddis - due to 15 or so years of steelheading followed by an avid 5 year saltwater stint.

Truth is, I could use some input from those in the trout know. Anyone?
