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.

Biography & Thoughts
I have been fly tying and fishing for over 30 years now. I'm grew up in SE Minnesota, and now living in Wisconsin. I know just about every rock and rapid on hundreds of miles of trout water in Houston County Minnesota. Most of the hatches and honey holes.I used to do fish taxidermy, now I build guitars.
