After more than 20 months of no updates on Troutnut.com, I'm very very happy to FINALLY release the new version!http://www.troutnut.com
I've done several all-nighters photographing mayflies and other trout stream bugs over the last two seasons, and all those pictures are up on the new site. I'm using a really cool camera setup, so the pictures are a LOT better than anything on the old site!I also spent about a month writing up the useful-for-hatch-matching behavioral details of every major American hatch and hundreds of not-so-major ones. Check out the Hex hatch
, or White Flies
for starters, or my personal favorite unsung hatch, the really cool Baetisca mayflies
.Here are some shrunken sample pics:Male Hendrickson Dun
Male Isonychia bicolor (Mahogany Dun) spinner
A Leptophlebia cupida mayfly I photographed molting from a dun to a spinner
An Isonychia bicolor Nymph
An Isoperla (Yellow Sally) Stonefly
I've also added hundreds of new trout stream scenery photos
like this one:
I'm breathing a HUGE sigh of relief now that I've got this online, but I'm going to keep working on it full-time. It's just nice to have something more to show for it than, "It's coming! No, really! It is! In a month... no, now
in a month... well, maybe in another
month..." Apologies to all who were disappointed by my optimistic release date guesses! Hopefully you'll agree it was worth it.
Let me know if anything on the site malfunctions. I had the help of several very good testers (like Taxon from Fly Fishing Entomology
) but it still hasn't been tested under a high volume of traffic.
