Blue-winged Olives

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 is the first of it's family I've seen, collected from a tiny, fishless stream in the Cascades. The three species of this genus all live in the Northwest and are predators that primarily eat stonefly nymphs Merritt R.W., Cummins, K.W., and Berg, M.B. (2019).
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.

Headed to northern Spain next month and plan to get on some local streams like the Ebro. Any guide referrals or information on permits etc would be greatly appreciated.

See the other thread I bumped up. The link in the last post is still good. That shop should be able to give you some information. Buena suerte.

There is a guy with a web site called Wish4Fish he does a guided trip to Spain and he probably can help you out. His name is Ken Tanaka.
