Blue-winged Olives

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.

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.

Male Epeorus frisoni Mayfly Dun Pictures

I collected this male dun together with a female spinner, a female dun, and another male dun. I photographed this bedraggled one, larger than the other male, to show some of the greatest size variation within the species.

This mayfly was collected from Mystery Creek #23 in New York on September 6th, 2006 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on October 3rd, 2006.
