Blue-winged Olives

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.

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.

I need two new fly lines. First, I need a floating 8 or 9 weight for my one handed steelhead rod- I primarily fish an indicator/nymph rig.

I also need a new 5 or 6 weight floating line, with a weight forward taper, or anything that will serve as my main floating line. I'd like to trade someone, if they have something like that.

I have tons of never used sinking lines I acquired when I somehow ended up with the inventory of a local flyshop that closed unexpectedly (I also have tons of flies and other stuff if that works better for you).

I'll offer two sinking lines (hopefully I'll have the weights you ask for) for one floating line. I may have some sink tip lines as well.

PM me and let me know what you'd be interested in trading and I'll see if I have it.

We need lists of the "tons of stuff". PM me if you have any Rio leaders and tippet material.
