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

This specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive 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.

I have Shimano Baitrunner Aero GT 8010 XT-7 fishing reel. I have been using it for bass plugging and spinning. Just wondering would this reel be OK for sea trout fishing as well? I also purchased 15 lb braid because I read somewhere that braided line is better than mono. I have been using Ed Schliffke Rockhopper bass plugger rod. Would this combination of rod and reel be OK for sea trout? I am new to angling, so any advice will be much appreciated.
