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.

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.

this is a pretty good one.
Yes it is!

I really want to fish dries for Atlantics after seeing this. The refusals are awesome. Especially the one where it's mouth is open, about to take, and then quick turns away at the end. That's a big fish too!

Good footage, and brings back the best of my memories in WA ST. Same low clear water, same defined pools and tailouts, and my quarry were Summer-run steelhead in the Fall...long 6wt rods, and size #10 wet flies swung down and across on a dry line. Same outfit I now fish for trout with in Idaho.

I've watched dozens, maybe hundreds, of fly fishing videos and this has to rank right up there with the best, if not the very best, video I've ever watched. Not only is the scenery and river awesome but the footage of salmon refusing the dry flies is fantastic. What I really liked was not only does the guy have great fishing he is able to share it with his wife/significant other who knows what she is doing and obviously enjoys it as much as he does.

When the video is over you can click to see the other salmon video he posted about a year ago. It is equally as good. Especially the scene in the pouring rain.
