The Vellach typical mountain stream characteristic makes it very suitable for the Ecdyonuridae (photos left and right). Also widely present the ubiquitous Baetidae and the Ephemerellidae (of this latter, one nymph is visible in the next page's rigth corner). The large Ephemeras (photo in the middle) are not numerous but present and even without mass-hatches like on chalkstreams, big trout and grayling may get very hot on these flies when they are hatching.
