If you don't believe all the commentary about the mayflies — and if you don't live in a mayfly-ridden area, you might just think the anglers are exaggerating — check out these photos. T.J. DeVoe of www.bassfirst.com shared these photos on Twitter.

The first photo was taken last night at a gas station as the mayflies were practically raining down. The second photo was the aftermath at the same gas station this morning.
