This morning on one of my favorite NW Wisconsin streams I found Ephoron leukon spinners and duns covering spider webs near the stream. Also, a wet fly version of Ephoron leukon worked great at catching trout still looking for the little white mayflies.

Great photos John! I've gotta say I miss that river, hard as it may be to complain about my present situation. :)

Jason, I never said what river! :-)

It's hard to compete with your terrific digital shots! Especially with my el cheapo point-and-click camera. Of course, even if I had the more expensive stuff I still wouldn't know how to use it. I need a mouse and a keyboard for everything. :-)

Nice fish, probably best not to let it touch land though... not great for mortality. Whenever possible, trout should be wet released and if you really need a pic, wet your hands and hold them or get a shot in your net while they are in the water.
