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

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.

Hello guys I have been MIA for the past five months I believe maybe I have ADD or something but I can only concentrate on one passion at a time and me and my English Setters spent the fall and winter chasing timberdoodles pheasants and Mr Ruff I havent been flyfishing yet maybe I will try a small stream for a bit today as my Battenkill is running too high sorry to be a fair weathered poster but if you had good bird dogs like mine you would do the same
IF I am not flyfishing or bird hunting I must be doing something bad like working !!

Happy Easter! I know how it is, I'm torn between Spring Gobblers, fishing, tying and rod building.
