In my Last post I was talking about a Dobsonfly, so I just wanted to bring it back to a fishing topic lol. Today I was out with a good friend Ed MacKenzie on his boat. We did not manage to get a fish to weigh in forthe Great ontario salmon derby, however , we still managed to get this beauty. We took this pic and set her free to swim another day.
I know this isn’t a fishing status but I thought it was a worthy post anyway. I have lived in Canada my entire life, grew up in the city of Toronto, spent countless hours in the wilderness, and although I have seen many weird animals and insects I have never come across something quite like this before. I do live in the country, but I did not have to venture far out of my home to make the acquaintance of this very interesting insect,
The Dobsonfly. This is a male Dobsonfly. Apparently it is native to Ontario, and it uses its large pincers to hold onto it’s partner during mating season. I took a few photos and a very short video. I hope you enjoy and do not have nightmares from it ha ha ha.
