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 specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive ID.
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.

Thanks Adirman, Im now looking for a copy of this. And yes I loved the quote, its this type of writing that brings some peace and quite in these loud and violent times. I recently purchased John Gierach's Dumb luck and the kindness of strangers, and I loved the book read it in one night. But it reminds of what life used to like, almost Andy Griffith like. I don't know, I wish we could just along, but I don't think its going to happen anytime soon, but there is always hope, and Im hoping!
