The fly that has worked well in February was a small black beetle.

During February 2003, Uncle Billy's experienced some good soaking rain with nearly 5 inches falling in one week. With the change in weather pattern (including cooler nights and rain) there has been quite a few hatches in the evening. The spinners (adult insects) seem to be small mayflies and midges. There has also been white moths.
