Blue-winged Olives
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.

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
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.

Looking to buy a new fishing rod. Need some good suggestions.. Previously I was using Shakespeare Travelmate 6’6″ Rod. I want to upgrade to a new brand.
I found this list . They have amazing rods with awesome amazon ratings.

Princemoga,

Are we talking about spinning rods or fly rods? What are you fishing for, masheer?

If it's a fly rod you're looking for..... perhaps a 6' 2wt fly rod. That would be a very light rod and good for area's where you were using the Shakespeare Travelmate.

Snowbee has a inexpensive 6' 2wt classic rod you might check out

Hmm, first post and it appears to be a blatant ad to sell fly rods.

If you want something that's going to last I recommend one from Sage. A lot of professionals use them and the warranties last a lifetime there's a round-up of all Sage rods here: https://flyfisherpro.com/gear/rods/sage-fly-rods/
