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

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.

I think I read about this on this site but I can't find the link.

What is the name of the bug that looks like a piece of white fuzz floating around? It has 2 black eyes, white wings, a fuzzy body, and a black underbody.

Somebody identified it here last year.
