I am trying to show my husband a picture if an insect I caught twice and i can't find it anywhere on the Web. I believe it's called a Fisher or Fischer fly? I'ts about 7 or 8 inches long, flies, and has 2 very long and thick in diameter antennae or mandibles. Do you know what this is and do you have a photo?
Thsnk you,

These things aren't quite 7" long, but they LOOK pretty long and impressive, especially with those big mandibles.
