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.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

Hi Tim yes I managed to catch 2 out of that pool (both small). I was using 6X leader/7X tippet. The first one I cast from about 40 ft below the pool -- all my fly line was on dry creekbed. The second I didnt cast at all-- just dropped my fly on the other side of that boulder.

The stream is Big Sur River in California.
