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.

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
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.

Matt,

Will you be fishing the Tully anytime soon? Anyone else? I hope to get over in the next few weeks to see what the midges are doing.

Matt, I'll use email. Unfortunately, I don't text . . . my daughters are threatening to teach me, though. It looks like I won't be free until next week, but there are some warmer days predicted for then.
