This dun emerged from a mature nymph on my desk. Unfortunately its wings didn't perfectly dry out.
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.

I'm not sure what these clusters of grannoms are doing lying dead and mostly upside down in clusters on the rocks.  Anyone have an explanation?
