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.

I went to a presentation tonight at Cornell by Ray Troll, an artist who focuses most of his work on biology and a lot of it on fish. He's got a website at http://www.trollart.com which shows several of his drawings and paintings, although a lot of my favorite ones aren't on the site. It was great to see them projected on a big screen during his presentation. The detail doesn't jump out like that on the website, but it's still very much worth checking out.
