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.
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.

This mayfly was found into my city, Zaragoza, in NE Spain, in a river forest (poplars, oxes, etc) The river (Ebro river) is great, deep, slow and contaminated. The picture (sorry by the poor quality) is taked at April. Two cerci, about 2 cm wingspan, veis marked in dark, at least in coastal area.

It's possible to identify? Could be an Ecdyonurus?
