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.
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.

Just to prove to the rest of the troutnuts out there that I can catch something other than panfish & bass...
High, off-color waters but hey, it's only 15 minutes from my house!  Next time will be better...

Here's a picture of my first brookie after moving (back) to northern Michigan. Tried to post it with my fishing report but something kept going wrong and still is, so we'll try it here...Notice how big the Woolly Bugger in his mouth is (size 6)! He hit it several times before I actually hooked him. You gotta love brookies!!

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