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.

Just uploaded a new video on YouTube about fly fishing in the Fall and Winter in Central New York! It is mostly a slideshow of pictures (since this is the photography section of the forum), with some video mixed in.
Some users might recognize some shots in the video. It was mostly shot in the Utica and Cortland areas of New York. Enjoy!

Sweet. Man, those are some huge and beautiful fish. I love winter fishing, and I love Central NY. Sometimes, when the weather is really nice and the stream is crawling with people, I find myself wishing it was January.

Thanks, Shawn. I know what you're saying about the streams being crowded. A stretch of water in the spring one day will be almost shoulder to shoulder, but on a 20 or 30 degree day - nothing but solitude! Glad you enjoyed it and I can't for the summer.
