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 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.

This particular midge pattern has been very successful for me locally for trout. It is tied on a size 20 curved caddis hook with bead and cdc for the shuck and peaking wing. The early season trout seem to really key in on this bug. Thought I would share!
