This Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.

Newbie here. I'm glad to have found this great online fly fishing community. I joined up in the hopes of learning a thing or two from the more experienced members here. Whenever I'm taking a breaï»¿k from this particular interest, I'm usually found at home, watching my Pomeranian relax in one of his dog beds and watching TV with the wife and kids. Such a simple, yet, happy life. Cheers, fellas!

Greetings to all "newbies", welcome! We like fish pics, as you can see from some of the latest posts. Feel free to show off your fishing exploits to us, especially if it involves travel. And tight lines!
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

Welcome to Troutnut.com there are some very learned formal entomologists who frequent this forum. Besides the real bug guys there are a bunch of not so formal bug guys who probably have enough fly fishing knowledge to get you very well informed. I have been fly fishing for fifty-five (55) years and am still learning various nuances of the game. I'm quite sure all of the formal bug guys also enjoy fly fishing too.
So if you have any questions you can just post them publicly or shoot me a PM and I'll do my best to answer it.
