Pteronarcys californica

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

This wild-looking little thing completely puzzled me. At first I was thinking beetle or month larva, until I got a look at the pictures on the computer screen. I made a couple of incorrect guesses before entomologist Greg Courtney pointed me in the right direction with Psychodidae. He suggested a possible genus of Thornburghiella, but could not rule out some other members of the tribe Pericomini.
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.

Some of you have requested a forum section for sharing photographs, and it seems like a good place to discuss photographic equipment and techniques too. So I've added the Photography section to the forum for all that.

I'm also moving some existing photo-related topics over to that section. Let's make good use of it!

It should accept any jpegs smaller than 1 megabyte. So it won't take high-resolution unresized pictures straight from the camera, but just about any typical screen size image should work.
