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.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

I recently picked up an older SVS 906 Scott rod and it had this reel on it. I have no idea who the manufacture is or if it even fits on the rod right. Can anyone help identify the reel. All it has is a logo of a Mayfly on it.

Sorry do not know how to add picture so changed my profile picture to that of the reel
