Blue-winged Olives

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 specimen appears to be of the same species as this one collected in the same spot two months earlier. The identification of both is tentative. This one suffered some physical damage before being photographed, too, so the colors aren't totally natural. I was mostly photographing it to test out some new camera setting idea, which worked really well for a couple of closeups.
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.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Hey all! It's been about a year since I've been on good 'ol troutnut... I've been stationed in Camp Casey South Korea.

So... anyone know anything about the area fish-wise? or even Korea in general... I'm at a loss of where to begin. If you've visited the area or even know a good website hook me up!

I know there is some largemouth bass fishing there. And that there are fishing clubs. You'll just have to do the Googling, and get chatty.
