Very cool resource for identifying NZ aquatic bugs

Ben Wilson, Fishery Manager for Auckland Waikato Fish & Game sent me a link to Landcare NZ's Freshwater Invertebrates Guide, an online resource that is comprehensive as well as totally useable.

I must admit that identifying nymphs & invetebrates other than the very common, or very distinctive, has not been my forte (despite owning a first edition copy of the classic Norman Marsh tome Trout Steam Insects of New Zealand, how to imitate and use them).

Thanks Ben, I'll be an avid user.
