Baetis

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 one pretty clearly keys to Kogotus, but it also looks fairly different from specimens I caught in the same creek about a month later in the year. With only one species of the genus known in Washington, I'm not sure about the answer to this ID.
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.

Happy New year Troutnutters

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cock’s wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you Troutnutters! Let's hope 2011 is a better year than 2010, even though I did catch some really nice fish this year. 2010 wasn't really a good year for me, as every time I thought I was FINALLY going back to work, it got delayed or cancelled. I am anticipating moving to northern lower Michigan in the next few weeks to start my life up again. I will be in Fishing Central up there what with the AuSable, the Rifle, the AuGres, the Pine, etc...not to mention lakes and many warmwater fisheries, and Lake Huron itself. That will hopefully make up for the last three unemployed years of my life.

Here's wishing you all tight lines and dancing trout (or your favorite warnmwater species) on the end of them in the year ahead!!!!

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Happy New Year everyone!

I believe it will be quite happy for this nut at least.
Within the next couple of weeks, plane tickets will be paid.
Destination; Big Sky Country, US.
A long way from home.
Somewhere, right now, a fish is rising.

Happy New Year to all my virtual buddies. Here's to another great year of buggy questions and answers, and those priceless observations on the angling world in general!
