Blue-winged Olives
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.

Sight fishing is the key! Waiting for patroling fish. Didn't land many only 4 but the two in the pictures are 16". All released healthy and happy. Great stuff, the temps in Denver were in the high 90's the water has been too high for my taste. So what is a guy to do? Ah yes head to the high country. Sunny and 70 with clouds blowing in around 2pm typical stuff. Perfect.

Gorgeous fish, and I'm sure the location can't be done justice in photos. The type of fishing you're describing is foreign to me. I'd love to try it sometime. Nice work!
