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.

Biography & Thoughts
I am a 48 yr old,married father of four. I grew up near Onieda lake in central New York. I have fished my whole life. I took up fly fishing 2yrs ago and have fallen in love with it. A lot of practice has paid off for me as I have been quite successful since starting. I have fishing buddies who haven't shown interest in wanting to learn something new,therefore I am joining the forum so I can hopefully be able to share experiences with others who have the same passion for the fly.
