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.

Hi Bob,

Very nice photo. What is the material on which the mayfly is resting?
Best regards,

Looks like the same thing I use, a white styrofoam ball.
