Pteronarcys californica

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

This one was surprisingly straightforward to identify. The lack of a sclerite at the base of the lateral hump narrows the field quite a bit, and the other options followed fairly obvious characteristics to Clostoeca, which only has one species, Clostoeca disjuncta.
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.

Jason has graciously allowed this one time post; I hope its a benefit to some. I quit using Mustad hooks for my commercial tying business several years ago and have in excess of 5,000 you can have for $.05 each; quite a bit less than retail. If interested, please message me.

Tight lines,

Tim
