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.

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.

I'm looking for good books on trout fly fishing.

Are there any good suggestions out there?

I love all the books by John Gierach, Trout bum being the most popular one. Standing in a River Waving a Stick and Death, Taxes, and Leaky Waders are both great too.

If you are interested in tying The Master's Fly Box is a good read. The author interviews different experienced fly fishermen and talk about their favorite patterns and contain a lot of pattern descriptions.
Salmon and sea trout fisher that sometimes get the chance to fish brown trout. Occasionally write about trout fishing.
