For identifications and and photos of damsels and dragonfly adults, Gayle and Jeanell Strickland's web site is amazing:




They also have marvelous net to easily catch Odonata - damselflies and dragonflies. You can easily make a "Strickland Rig": http://public.fotki....images-intende/

Other nice adult Odonata sites are:

is a web forum that covers the entire ento spectrum. There are some very bright folks who regularly participate there. It is NOT fishing oriented, but if you need an ID, someone there will be able to do it. Be warned though that it can get quite political, very opinionated, and technical. I read it quite a bit because one of my other illnesses (besides fishing) is insect collecting and rearing.

I found this site some time ago and I like it. It has info on bugs and flies.


Do you all know of better ones?

Yeah try www.bugguide.net
also teaches you the taxonomy so you will eventually learn how all these bugs are related to each other from a evolutionary perspective.
Great Pics too with both the adult forms and immature forms

Does any one know about this Entomology course?  it is on sale right now but I'm not sure if it would be worth it.  Maybe I just need to apply that money to books?
