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 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.

Well fellow forum members, The stock market fell again today I'm really starting to feel the pinch. I'm starting to gather money up for next spring so I can pay my lot rent for my fishing trailer for the summer months. I have decided to sell off my fishing partner.
I decided to auction off Uncle Johns nephew Newt You fellows know him as L Martin. Now there is a reserve on Louis it's high but a good malt might do the trick. Old newt has a lot of strong points, he like a pointer on rising fish he holds tight with out a waver. You won't have to buy any flies he a excellent tier. Above all he keeps a secret like a prisoner of war. On the bad side he snores and tells rather bad jokes.
I figured I would start the bidding right after Christmas because that's the next time were supposed to fish together .

All bids will be closed bids.
Just send me a PM

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Send you a PM? That wouldn't be any fun! I bid an amount equivalent to the proceeds from sale of 100 shares of Washington Mutual common stock at today's value.

Well, I don't have any money to bid. I do have some gum. Some of it hasn't been chewed. Would you accept the rest of it?

I'll bid one (1) 6' 3" Berkeley Parametric fiberglass fly rod (6 wgt.), originally purchased in 1968. Since we switched from a canister vacuum to an upright, I no longer need the rod butt to unclog the hose. So, I might as well put it to use otherwise..

I think I’ll hang onto my Jack. You might want to consider dropping the reserve. In these trying times Louis may prove to be worthless. However, once Obama turns this diving economy around Louis might regain some value, but don’t hold your breath.

your best bet may be to re-organize yourself as a bank holding Co and sell Louis to the the US Treasury under the TARP program

Hmm. Can I bid on myself? So this is what happens when I get busy and don't monitor this site more closely. Let me just warn you all, never buy a pig in a poke!
