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 species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

Hey everyone, I have recently found this fishing forum and checked it out a little bit. Seems pretty cool! I really enjoy fly fishing myself and tying my own flies. I'm from Central Utah. I look forward to viewing this forum!

Thanks Wbranch, I was also wondering how do I post pictures on here?

To post pictures you need an account with one of those web sites like Photobucket, Flickr, or any of that ilk. Then when u upload photos from your camera, or "pictures" file to that site you can then "copy" the picture and insert it into a thread you start at Troutnut.com Just remember to change the suffix and prefix IMG to lower case img and your pictures should be visible to all. If I missed anything I'm sure other forum members will gladly make their comments.

Hi Bigtrout -

Welcome to the forum.
Ya I have a photobucket account, can I just copy the IMG file type and copy that into this text box?

Yes, it works for me anyway without any alterations. There are multiple options for file type with PB so be sure to highlight the one that starts with {IMG}, copy it and insert in the post body and you are there!

Regards,

Kurt
