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.

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.

A wonderful two days of cooperative rising wild trout. Rose about sixteen trout. Hooked a dozen and landed nine. The browns were all 16" - 20" and the rainbows 15" - 16". No pressure. Only myself and my best friend of 55 years on over 1/4 mile or river.

I really love the set-up; Orvis Helios 2 9' #4 Tip flex, 4 pcs. with a Lamson Speedster reel and an Orvis HD WF#4 line. I can throw a 15' 5X leader and a #18 fly 50' with ease.
