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

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

Likewise. I hit the "ban" button. If this person is for real, he/she should have been more honest about the details, because this story doesn't add up. I don't want anyone taking a chance on getting scammed by someone who's obviously not going to contribute much to the forum, whether sincere or not.
