Jon Boy-

 

Ah, that would be your famous Ephemera danica, often also refered to as simply Mayfly.

We have to wait a couple of week before the hatch of Ephemera Danica

 

But soon........

Bosse-

 

Would appreciate it if you could tell me any of the local (fly fishing) names for the mayflies in Sweden, which are:

Of course, I realize that the vast majority of these species may be of little (or no) interest to the Swedish fly fisher, as they don't produce a fishable emergence. However some of them undoubtedly do, and if you are aware of any common names for them, I would very much appreciate knowing them. If not, maybe someone else will see this post and be able to supply some of them. Thanks.

Hey Taxon, I will try to help as much as I can. The names I know on the once below are (of course) the once normaly in interest of the fly fisherman in sweden because they will each in wome time of the year produce a hatch worth fishing on. I have also added some that I know of here in sweden that aren't on your list and they are marked in red below.

Ulf-

 

Please forgive my not having responded earlier with appreciation for the work you did. I am reminded of the saying, "Be careful of what you ask for!". You gave me exactly what I asked for, but unfortunately, I don't read or speak Swedish. I did present your response to an online translation facility, Swedish to English, but the translation of the Swedish common names to English came out really goofy. Most of them said dragonfly. So, perhaps you could make a literal translation of the Swedish common names for me. Thank you very much, and sorry it's so tardy.

 

Sincerely,

Roger Rohrbeck
