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.

I bought that wading jacket earlier this year and really like it. I'd strongly recommend that you purchase a size larger. I realized this after mine was delivered and had to exchange it. I would have realized this if I'd read the customer reviews on the Cabelas website. Anyway, got it a size larger and it works well. I live and fish in SW VA, so we don't get the extremely cold weather, but it held up well during some chilly early spring showers. I also like to travel lightly and the exterior pockets will hold several small to medium-sized fly boxes. I hope this helps. Good luck.
