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 dun emerged from a mature nymph on my desk. Unfortunately its wings didn't perfectly dry out.
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.

Just found a pretty cool magazine, sorry If I'm slow, but if any of you have not heard of it you should check it out!

One of my bug pictures is in a recent edition. :) Appropriately enough, it's a brown drake.

Jason, thats awesome, have you had any other pictures in different magazines? Which edition is it? I looked in the one I have which is Vol. 10 issue one. I find it funny that in the top right corner of the cover it says FIVE BUCKS, 10 bucks for bait fisherman. haha

Congrats, Jason. Is your pic the one on the cover with the mayfly perched on the guy's chin? And, if so, is that your chin? I love that photo.

I read in a online forum that they published something about my flies in their last issue. I couldn't find the issue on any shelves, though, so I contacted the publisher and he said he'd send me a copy. So far, nothing has arrived.

If your issue is the latest, Thomas and Thomas, do you mind PMing me? I'd like to know what they said about my stuff.

Thanks,
Shawn

I don't have a subscription, so I've just got the one issue they sent with my picture in it, which is Volume 9 Issue 1. My picture is about half-way through.
