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.

My nephew Marvin came to Pennsylvania this year, mainly to fish for smallmouth. But high water kept trout streams viable, so we fished a couple of them. We used both fly rods and conventional gear, catching fish on streamers, poppers, nymphs, flukes, and swimbaits. It's always good fishing with Marvin, and he carries a camera, so we get a few photos.
"He spread them a yard and a half. 'And every one that got away is this big.'"

FAT BOYS!!! Well done, Louis! Yep, as in my latest post, these trips with family and/or friends are always special. Especially when nice fish are caught! We didn't score big on my latest visit with the boys but we sure did see some pretty territory, which needs further exploration on my part...but you guys did great, some hard-bent rods there!
Thanks for sharing your latest adventure and of course tight lines and dancing flies on your next outing!
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...
