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

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.

I recently got an Olympus Stylus 850 underwater camera...I wanted to put up a picture and see if anyone else is having luck with any underwater shots of trout?

I was wondering how long you had to hold your hand under there until the fish swam into it.

Amazing fortitude, and nice shot.
