Blue-winged Olives
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.

This specimen appears to be of the same species as this one collected in the same spot two months earlier. The identification of both is tentative. This one suffered some physical damage before being photographed, too, so the colors aren't totally natural. I was mostly photographing it to test out some new camera setting idea, which worked really well for a couple of closeups.
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.

Well Just got a new set up a couple weeks ago. It is a 9ft. 8wt. Redington Cross water. I just got the rod, and bought a different reel of it and together it was just over $300. It is by far, out of my 2 other fly rod set ups the best one I have! Especually for the price!! If you are looking to get set up for the right price I highly recommend it!
