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

This one seems to tentatively key to Holocentropus, although I can't make out the anal spines in Couplet 7 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae nor the dark bands in Couplet 4 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae, making me wonder if I went wrong somewhere in keying it out. I don't see where that could have happened, though. It might also be that it's a very immature larva and doesn't possess all the identifying characteristics in the key yet. If Holocentropus is correct, then Holocentropus flavus and Holocentropus interruptus are the two likely possibilities based on range, but I was not able to find a description of their larvae.
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.

There are a couple ways. First plug your Iphone into your computer and instead of going through iTunes just import the photos like you would from any didgital camera, then upload to troutnut.com. The other way and this is how I usually do it, is to get a photobucket account and then get the photobucket app. you can then upload from yur phone to photobucket and then in a post you can copy the img tag from the photo you would like to use in photobucket and paste it into your thread post. I just did this yesterday in a thread about Anthopotamus. It is in the post about Anthopotamus verticis.
