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.

Hello Gents,
I am in the market for a new 6 weight, and have been looking at the Sage VT2. Anyone use this rod? Opinions and other suggestions are certainly welcome.
Thanks in advance.

my brother fishes this rod and loves it. I've casted it a few times and it seems to be as good a medium/fast rod as my limited skills can utilize.
