Pteronarcys californica

The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Lateral view of a Female Trichoptera (Caddisfly) Insect Adult from unknown in Wisconsin
Male Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olive) Mayfly Dun from unknown in Wisconsin
This ia a very tiny (hook size 22-24) dun. The pictures are terrible, but it's very fragile and it's one of the first adult mayflies I ever photographed.
