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.

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.
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.

To all:

I used to post and follow this site on a consistent basis, but have slowed because of student teaching and various other commitments. I usually post a video at the end of every fishing season, and thats what I am on here for. Enjoy it! All you need to do is copy and paste the address into your browser.

Thanks Artie, nice video.
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."

Great video, Artie. Some pretty waterfalls from my neck of the woods in there - glad to see them. And, of course - beautiful fish.
