This is a tailed frog, genus Ascaphus that lives in cold fast streams of the west. Perhaps this critter is one reason that leech flies work in some trout streams. From the Touchet River in Washington.

Bob,

Nice pics! I love those Drunella! They look like they could knock around just about any other aquatic insect...Like they have been "bulking up" in the weight room.

Those are nice ones! I think Drunella doddsii could beat them up in a heavyweight boxing match, although they do look more nimble.

In water where Drunella can be found, everything gets out of the way of the perlids.:)
