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.

I posted some more neat stuff from HD video cameras on my graduate project's website:

The YouTube clips leave a lot to be desired, because YouTube compresses the heck out of things and I haven't figured out how to encode videos for the best YouTube quality yet. But click the still pictures in that post (which are just frame captures from the full-sized video) and you'll see some wild Alaskan fish up close & personal.

I wish I could share the full HD video with everyone, because it's really, really cool, but the file size is about a gigabyte per minute.
