Blue-winged Olives
Baetis

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 specimen keys to the Epeorus albertae group of species. Of the five species in that group, the two known in Washington state are Epeorus albertae and Epeorus dulciana. Of the two, albertae has been collected in vastly more locations in Washington than dulciana, suggesting it is far more common. On that basis alone I'm tentatively putting this nymph in albertae, with the large caveat that there's no real information to rule out dulciana.
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.

Where does Jason get these banner photo's? Today is the bridge over the Beaverkill below Horton. The Cemetery Pool is upstream and slightly to the left.

They're all taken from the landscape pictures section of this site, cropped to fit the banner spot at the top.

If I can find the time, I've got a LOT of great banners from Alaska to add! First I have to crop the pictures, add them to the site, etc. Grad school is keeping me busy.

I won't be taking any of the current photos (including the NY ones) out of the rotation... but Alaska's definitely going on there!!

Sounds good to me Jason. You obviously have an eye for nice shots.

Jason,

You need a helper for the ongoing site projects.
