mayfly of the goulburn river a photo essay

The Mayfly. Nothing stirs the flyfisher's imagination more than this family of insects. Their place in fly fishing folklore long establised, new generations of anglers continue to be introduced, to what is the 'ballet' of the insect world.

Every night the priveleged few get to see yet another performance in this never ending play. With the fisherman themselves being mere bit part actors, the trout major benefactors, it is the mayfly alone that commands centre stage, and rightfuly so.

Their beauty is unrivalled. Their importance unquestioned. Their fragility is a constant a reminder to all of us that life is precious and fleeting, each moment to be enjoyed and savoured, like a fine wine or a particularly beautiful sunset.

Below you will find a few of the hundreds of insect shots that never made it onto the website this past year. Enjoy them. The new season is but weeks away and I am almost about to hatch myself.
