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 just realized my specimen is likely Nigronia serricornis and therefor posted in the wrong section

And is there anyway to embed video? I tried the usual BB and embed codes, to no avail...
