This Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.

When the fishing lets up, I grab my Nikon and spend time shooting various subjects, usually lakes and rivers. I was traveling back home from a Fly Fishing trip in the Eastern Sierras of CA last month and decided to take a full day shooting images.
This is a shot across Silver Lake situated in the middle of the Sierras about 80 miles from Sacramento. This is Thunder Mountain... it sits north of Silver Lake between the lake and Kirkwood Ski Resort.
