Hello Sam.
I found one in Wikipedia, Larder Beetle, dermestes lardarius. I was curious too as I remembered having seen them as well some time ago.

Hello again Ferne.
Apparently there are about 18 in the Tussock Moth family,  yours is listed as
"Rusty Tussock Moth" orgyia antiqua, in the Princeton Guide.

Hello RegoR nice photo.
Looks like a North American Leopard Frog. A bit light on the black spots, I wonder if it is a juvenile, or a variant? (reply...)

Hello Ferne, we use a similar type of  fishing fly, a Woolly Worm,usually black with a mixed white feather but I have caught salmon on an all white one,thank you,  you have helped me with your photo.
White Woolly Worm,(I think), caterpillar phase of  the Yellow Woolly Bear moth, Spilosoma virginica, a widely distributed member in the Arctiidae family of caterpillars.   http://www.allaboutworms.com/
