You may be worried about being bitten while collecting or handling aquatic insects. Generally this isn't a problem. A few insects, particularly hellgrammites and some water bugs, are capable of biting. To avoid any problems, handle insects with forceps or tweezers or hold them loosely in an open hand. By handling them gently, even the fiercest larva will be more concerned about finding its way back to the water than it will be about feeding on your hand.

All adult insects have one pair. Their size, shape, and location on the head, however, vary widely. Mouth Parts. The mouth parts of all insects are composed of four distinct structures: labrum (upper lip), mandibles, maxillae, and labium (lower lip). The maxillae and labium often possess a pair of finger-like structures called maxillary palpi and labial palpi, respectively (see illustration of Page 8 head, above). Insects feed on many types of food in many different ways. To feed effectively, the four basic parts of the mouth have evolved into many different shapes.

The intensity of this feeding, however, may vary during the day depending upon changes in light, temperature, and other weather conditions and depending upon the availability of food. Because morning and evening are periods of greater insect activity, they are good times to find fish feeding randomly. A fly that has the general shape of many insects and looks alive in the water will probably produce best during times of random feeding. The fly must still be presented near the fish, however, since they may not move to take the fly if other food is closer.
