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.
I'm a salmonid research scientist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife since 2022. I completed my Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of Alaska. I created Troutnut.com in February 2004 and worked on it full-time during various short breaks from school and work.
