The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

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.
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´m 33 years old and started fishing , when i was 3 years old. This year i started fly tying and casting. Fly tying for me is a hobby within a hobby and a western way of meditation. I do quite a range of styles thanks to a few good books on tying and a colleague of mine, who helped me through the first steps. I liked the style of the discussion i read on this board and want to share my thoughts here and maybe get a little bit of help or even join a competition.
