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

This specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive ID.
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.

SUNY ESF every year celebrates Earth Day all week and as part of the festivities we find ways to care for our Mother Earth. This year a few organizations within the school are at the forefront of an Adopt-a-Stream program, including the Fly Fishing club. We are looking for as much help as possible and plan to be on the stream April 26th from 10 until 2. We will be working along Butternut Creek in central New York. If anyone wants to spend some time and lend a hand on Butternut Creek that Saturday afternoon let me know.
