Photographing Flies

I am looking for a digital camera that does both, fish and flies. I have been reading about macro features and attached lenses. I see alot of flies posted here. Does anybosy have any recomendations. Let's just say for arguments sake that we are looking at a 2-400 dollar range

I've been looking at that very model online. The pentax looks a bit sturdier than the olympus 410. You seem to get great results on the flies. Are you using the built in macro mode? I have not been able to lay my hands on one and wonder if you can answer another question. Are there any threads on the lens housing? I'd like to shoot with a polarizing filter was wondering if it will accept one. I use filters on my 35mm Nikon but it wouldn't last 5 minutes in the boat, she rides a little wet

I use the Pentax Optio 33 WR - this is the precursor to the 43. It has a built in macro - see my posts on Archives of Salmon & Steelhead Flies.
