Blue-winged Olives
Baetis

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

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 began flyfishing for trout when I was 16. I am now 51 and still carry the passion for the sport as I did as a youngster. I try to share this passion with anyone that wants to learn about flyfishing for trout.
I have been the Education Chairman for the Connecticut Fly Fisherman's Association www.ctflyfish.org since 1990. I love your website and I refer all my students to it whether they take our fly tying or our fly fishing class. I have used many of your photos in our beginning fly fishing school since you gave me permission a few years ago. Keep up the great work it is very helpful to many flyfishers. Gary
