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.

Wbranch, I heard that, plus I like keeping my flies in my vest, safe & dry. Plus Trout Unlimited gives you a nice hat & more, and your money is very well spent, not a ad for fly company, or whatever. But to each there own...Concept is first tree branch got some of those baits. Sorry Bver, ya asked buddy....

I keep my day's working flies on a fly keeper/"drying patch" on my vest where I can see them. I liked a wool patch but I lost too many flies with them. So I went to strips of adhesive backed window insulation from hardware stores. It's s soft foam rubber that holds flies of all sizes really well, is durable, and a 3"x1/2" strip holds a bunch of flies in a small space. Peel and adhere to my vest. Not pretty like wool but in drab gray color is not noticeable either.

I use a need C&F fly protector.

It is a foam fly patch similar to the C&F fly boxes except it has a big safety pin on the back so you can pin it on your vest. I has a translucent gray cover to protect the flies from falling out of the micro slits. That has never happened to me.

Here's the stuff I use. Local hw store sells it by the foot. "One foot. please." A 3" strip is good to go for a season or two:
