    Would it be in anyway possible to get some to the UK?
    As eggs maybe?
    Although im not sure how the eggs are deposited :/
    I just find the larvae and the dobson fly amazingly impressive and really really want to keep them, we only get dragon and damsel flies around me, nothing compares to hellgrammites.
    Are they rare?
    Whats the largest species?
     
  2. I love fishing with these things!! Wish they sold them at Walmart or somewhere in my area. I find the wingless ones under rocks in the river, etc. My step dad and me use to go out in the river with a net and id hold it up right while he turned over rocks and they would flow into the net. I've rarely see the flying ones around here but we have them.
