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.

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.

Chicago - a rock band of the late 60's early 70's that introduced horns to the genre


For the record...I saw them at Goose Lake Music Festival in 1970...I was 16! What was my mom thinking letting me go...It was a piss poor attempt at a Woodstock repeat the following year near Jackson MI. Rod Stewart right after leaving Jeff Beck and recording the "Gasoline Ally" record. John Sebastian of Woodstock & Lovin' Spoonful fame. Alvin Lee & Ten Years After. Iggy & the Stooges. Savage Grace (You needed to have lived in MI). Leslie West & Mountain. Somewhere alone about here the memory fades...

You may know who Jonny Lang is (modern day jazz practitioner of exceptional talent). That's just Spence trying to be hip again.:)


???I missed this one???

Since it sounds like you are from Chi-Town did you ever get to see Michael Bloomfield or Paul Butterfied?

Spence -

Some times it feels that way, but no. I don't think passing back and forth through O'Hare twice a month for almost seven years counts.

Those names sound familiar, but I don't think so. Was one of them a harmonica player?

Isn't it a Jonny Lang song you were referring to with the Louise quote? Sorry, my mistake.

Nope...It was an ungodly obscure quote from an old Firesign Theater album called, "Don't Crush that Dwarf, Hand me the Pliers". I'm sorry, really. A good friend of mine and I developed a bad habit of quoting this LP in certain situations as young fellows...It was purely a knee-jerk thing on my part...

Poor Jesse, having his thread with beautiful photos of western trout being hijacked by...a bunch of old hippies!!!

And what's playing in the back ground as I write this? "If Not For You", by Bob Dylan and being performed by George Harrison...guilty as charged!

These truelly are some great photos Jesse. My complements to you and whoever took the photos. Being a good photographer isn't easy but taking pictures of trout like that and then releasing them unharmed is an art.

I wouldn't say that im being hijacked by you guys its good for the older folk to catch up on the pre-historic times ha ;) and thanks cut bow i take most of the photos myself but the ones of me holding the fish were taken by a buddy of mine. That was nice though because usually im setting up the self time.. I appreciate your comments.

Very nice fish. Sitting here most of the way across the continentin MO seeing these pics really lifts my spirits...If all had gone as planned I would be in Missoula, Montana right now, but such is life.

Jesse, don't mind Spence. Why, when we were toddlers, our Mammas had to keep an eye on us to make sure we didn't get stepped on by a Stegosaurus!

MO, if you don't make it out to Montana, you just might consider moving up here - the fishing is outrageous! As you may have perceived from my posts this year, and I've barely scratched the surface...trout lakes by kayak are my next adventure! And then there's fall-run steelhead...Don't worry, Spence, I'll keep him away from the South Branch, once MO hits the Rifle he'll be posessed and obsessed...

Yeah, the fishing is outrageous out there... I have thought long and hard about moving up to that part of the world, and I'm still trying to figure out a way to make it happen.
