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.

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.

The fishing was really nice yesterday. There were quite a few caddis on the water, and a few mayflies too. No big fish, just a lot of 10-12 inch resident rainbows, and one smallish brown. Not a bad day anyway.
