Pteronarcys californica

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

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.

Looks like a Leucrocuta based on the orientation of the spots in the forewing. I'm pretty sure Stenacron has it's spots in the 3rd space.
