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 species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

Fly fishing highlight video of Lake Run Brown Trout in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Filmed by James Pryal of Into The Wild Fly Fishing Guide Service. All of these fish were caught over a few hour span, all on streamers. The biggest fish was 34 inches, Over 20 pounds. All fish were released.

@Adirman, I caught him on a cream colored bunny streamer. It's similar to a little rascal, has a larger cone head. Thanks.

@Bruce, Eddie Vedder actually.

For anyone concerned... in this video you will notice a fish on the bank for a few photos. I took extra care in each fish caught (like I do for any of the ones I catch) so please don't alarmed. I was quite excited in catching a 34 inch Brown Trout... as this will maybe never happen to me again.
*DISCLAIMER* No fish were harmed in the making of this film. Haha!
