Those are good looking bugs.  Foam?  I'm assuming they float, since you call them "Dry Needles."

Needles, is that what you are calling stoneflies? That's what they look like to me.

Hi,

 

thank you all very much for your comments :-)

 

@ shoebop: you are absolutely right. They are Stoneflies. In Flyfishing Literature the small species of Stoneflies are often called "Needles" or "Needle Flies"...
