Pteronarcys californica

The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

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.

Trying to get a picture posted here, but Tuesday was a good day. Didn't start fishing till noon as I was staying till dark. Caught several fish, and then a real nice one, all fish came on 14 yellow drake. About 9:00 pm a big caddis hatch, but mine were totally ignored. I'm going to try some different caddis patterns this week. Hope everyone is getting out and enjoying themselves.

Mike.
