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.

I caught this tiny larva without a case, but it seems to key pretty clearly to to Glossosomatidae. From there, the lack of sclerites on the mesonotum points to either Glossosoma or Anagapetus. Although it's difficult to see in a 2D image from the microscope, it's pretty clear in the live 3D view that the pronotum is only excised about 1/3 of its length to accommodate the forecoxa, not 2/3, which points to Glossosoma at Couplet 5 of the Key to Genera of Glossosomatidae 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.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Hello! I'm an avid fisherman from West Virginia and have been on the boards here. Wasn't sure the best place to post, but here we go. My friend, Beau, is the creator of Catch Cam Nets. You can see how cool it is if you follow the link below. We're trying to raise funding for the project via Kickstarter and would like to get the fishing community involved to see where our nets stand among real fishermen. Please check out our page here; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...?ref=user_menu

Thanks in advance for the support. I truly believe in his idea. Please consider helping or sharing the project with the fishing community so that we can make this awesome project a reality.

Cheers!
