The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

This one seems to tentatively key to Holocentropus, although I can't make out the anal spines in Couplet 7 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae nor the dark bands in Couplet 4 of the Key to Genera of Polycentropodidae Larvae, making me wonder if I went wrong somewhere in keying it out. I don't see where that could have happened, though. It might also be that it's a very immature larva and doesn't possess all the identifying characteristics in the key yet. If Holocentropus is correct, then Holocentropus flavus and Holocentropus interruptus are the two likely possibilities based on range, but I was not able to find a description of their larvae.
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.

...and when I say "gear", I mean shirts. I grew up fishing with my family. Eventually, I got tired of how many flaws I saw in my shirts when I was fishing...my pockets were too baggy, my line snagged on my sleeve in the middle of a cast. So, I decided to start my own line to make my perfect shirt. No more baggy pockets! I think it's something you all would really enjoy when you're fishing. I've been able to wear these fishing in Gunnison, and Port O'Connor, and they've quickly become my favorite shirts. Check them out and let me know what you think. Any feedback is extremely appreciated. Thanks!

interesting, Dagon was the fish-deity of the Philistines in ancient history...supposedly half-man, half-fish and depicted in statues and carvings found in the Middle East and Mediterranean coast.

Anyway, nice shirts.

The maker may believe they are the best fishing shirts. They are also the most expensive fishing shirts I have ever seen. A long sleeve, knit poly T-shirt for $95.00. Ouch, that is twice as much as most every other makers similar shirt.
