Blue-winged Olives

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.

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.

Let me start by saying, sorry, I know this isn't the best pic I took. I was fishing the upper pine creek in Pa. this past weekend, and the trout were hammering this little black bug. wouldn't touch anything else. woundering if any of you guys could help identity it.

Apparently your photo isn't displaying, probably because IMG and /IMG are in upper case. Just change them to lower case, i.e. img and /img
