This beautiful, remote stretch of one of the lesser-known large Catskill trout streams produced my only trout in two days of slow fishing, a 9 inch brown. Better than nothing! In fact, even "nothing" in this setting is really something! From the Neversink River Gorge in New York.

Do you ever have so much fun trying to fool a fish that you're almost disappointed when you actually do?  I got that feeling after who knows how many casts over this hungry little brown with a Trico imitation. From the Neversink River in New York.

This Ephemerella invaria sulphur dun got stuck in its shuck trying to emerge.  This isn't exactly a "natural" pose for a photograph, but it kind of shows what an emerger pattern could look like. From the Neversink River in New York.

I saw something strange flying around near the streambank, fluttering on and off the water's surface, so I went to check it out.  I didn't recognize the wing profile in flight, and it's no surprise!  These two caddisflies were joined mating, and they were very reluctant to let go. From the Neversink River in New York.

I'm not sure what these clusters of grannoms are doing lying dead and mostly upside down in clusters on the rocks.  Anyone have an explanation? From the Neversink River in New York.

Female Tricorythodes (Tricos) Mayfly SpinnerFemale Tricorythodes (Tricos) Mayfly Spinner View 9 PicturesI photographed this Trico alive, although it didn't have much time left. These things die very quickly after they mate and it's hard to rush them back to the studio.

Formicidae (Ants) Ant AdultFormicidae (Ants) Insect Adult View 7 PicturesI collected this flying ant from the surface of a popular Catskill trout stream, where its species prompted steady rising from selective trout for several late-morning hours. It was mixed with smaller ants of a different color, and I photographed one of them too.
