This is the first of it's family I've seen, collected from a tiny, fishless stream in the Cascades. The three species of this genus all live in the Northwest and are predators that primarily eat stonefly nymphs Merritt R.W., Cummins, K.W., and Berg, M.B. (2019).
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.

This is a photo for Fred re: his post "What's so Big about the Hex?" From Spence.  It's a photo of V Marinaro on the South Branch of the Au Sable in Michigan sometime in the late 60's.

I hope that the attached photo shows up. It's of V Marinaro on the South Branch of the Au Sable in Michigan from the late 60's. Enjoy! I hope this works because I don't know what I'm doing here.
