Pteronarcys californica

The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

This dun emerged from a mature nymph on my desk. Unfortunately its wings didn't perfectly dry out.
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.

Hi,

Anyone know a source for obtaining a slant tank for photographing flies/insects on the water?

Any info appreciated.

Many hardware stores will cut glass (or acrylic sheets) to size for you and sell you silicone caulk for the job. You may want to build a jig for assembly out of cardboard and tape to get the shape that you want. I have never seen one available commercially. It will off-gas while curing so you probably don't want to do it in a kitchen or bedroom.

Good luck

I no longer need a slant box.
My cousin made this little one out of glass for me.
Thanks though.
