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.

This specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive ID.
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.

Biography & Thoughts
I'm 31 years old. New father to 6 month old twin boys, and besides them, Fly Fishing and Tying for Trout is LIFE! I live in North Georgia where the grass is greener and fishing is all year round. I'm always looking for new friends to talk fishing with and share what we've learned with each other.
