Blue-winged Olives

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 species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

Beautiful and moving video! Life is such a powerful force, filled with tenacity. If only those who put profit and power above it could understand this kind of experience. I wonder if some of the aerial shots were taken with a drone. It's amazing what they can capture.
