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.

Psilotreta labida (Dark Blue Sedge) Caddisfly Larva Pictures

I like how the green of this larva's body shows through the slightly translucent sand grains of its case.

I added several new bugs I collected this week to the site tonight, including this caddisfly. Anybody care to ID it?

To view all the new specimens, go to any page of this site outside the forum section (like the homepage) and look under "recent updates" in the left column.

I'll be adding some even better bug pictures tomorrow from a collecting trip a couple days later.

Jason-

My guess would be Psilotreta or another Odontocerid.
