Pteronarcys californica

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 tentatively key to Holocentropus, although I can't make out the anal spines in Couplet 7 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae nor the dark bands in Couplet 4 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae, making me wonder if I went wrong somewhere in keying it out. I don't see where that could have happened, though. It might also be that it's a very immature larva and doesn't possess all the identifying characteristics in the key yet. If Holocentropus is correct, then Holocentropus flavus and Holocentropus interruptus are the two likely possibilities based on range, but I was not able to find a description of their larvae.
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.

Well with the heat wave going on here in New York I was looking around on youtube and found some blood boiling videos you must see.They are all trout fishing on the fly with some good shots of bugs in the air on the water and in the water.If you are a troutnut you will want to see these. they were so good I watch them all twice.There is also one video they did for large mouth that is the best I have ever seen.

To get the videos just go to yuotube and type in T-motion catch magazine and they will come up enjoy I know I did.
