The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

This one was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.
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.

does anyone know the color of the egg sac for scuds. I keep thinking that it is redish color, but I could be mistaken because that is the most common "hotspot" color i've seen used on the czech nymphs.

The marsupium (egg pouch) appears orange in color.
