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

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.

I have a question on behalf of a friend who is temporarily living in Iowa...he has heard of some rainbow fishing in the northeastern part of the state, but is wondering if anyone knows of any specific destinations? He is currently living in the central part of the state so any info on places to trout fish in that area would be helpful as well. Thanks for any info that could help him...

iowa has a website that talks about the trout streams in that state. I was thinking of moving there last year and looked it up. sounded like some good streams.
I have seen nothing more beautiful than the sunrise on a cold stream.
