Salmonflies
Pteronarcys californica

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

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.
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.

NE Anglers, have you seen Pocketguide to Pennsylvania Hatches by Meck and Weamer? It's new and chock full of great photos. I haven't checked it out thoroughly but they do call cornutas latas. I hope there hasn't been a change in this direction. No Darth Vadar, either. Which is fine with me. Mum's the word, John. :) Thanks again, Gonzo.

Louis-

Haven't seen it yet, but I suspect that, given the lead time for publishing, or just owing to careless taxonomic proofreading, the book is not reflective of the most recent taxonomy concerning Drunella cornuta and D. cornutella. Frankly, it is extremely difficult to keep up with the changes, even on a website.
Best regards,

Another error I spotted. They call the Letort a premier stream for Tricos. Trikes have been on the decline on the Letort for years. I don't know of many who fish the hatch there now. At last report they were spotty at best.
