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.

This one seems to tentatively key to Holocentropus, although I can't make out the anal spines in Couplet 7 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae nor the dark bands in Couplet 4 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae, making me wonder if I went wrong somewhere in keying it out. I don't see where that could have happened, though. It might also be that it's a very immature larva and doesn't possess all the identifying characteristics in the key yet. If Holocentropus is correct, then Holocentropus flavus and Holocentropus interruptus are the two likely possibilities based on range, but I was not able to find a description of their larvae.
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.

Every year, fly fisherman around the globe hold off on their big new fly rod purchases for the moment when George Anderson releases his annual “5-weight Shootout”. This year, there was a changing of the guard (again), when the G. Loomis NRX LP unseated the Hardy Zenith as the “king of all fly rods”. Needless to say, we couldn’t wait to test them out head-to-head. To do this right, we had to ask ourselves:

From the Troutnut.com Forum Index Page :


  • Don't blatantly advertise. I'm not very territorial about web links and if you made a really neat website you can post about it. If you've got a fishing-related commercial site you can link to it tastefully in your signature. If you sign up and post one or two blatant, boring advertisements and then leave, we will boot you from our clubhouse and mock you behind your back.
