  1. Default New FINALLY up! 2000+ new bug pics

    After more than 20 months of no updates on, I'm very very happy to FINALLY release the new version!http://www.troutnut.comI'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, Isonchia, 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:Hex nymph head close-up:An Isoperla (Yellow Sally) Stonefly:A Hellgrammite: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.

    Thanks. Now that I've got it up I'm trying to finally get out and do a good amount of fishing, but the rain is keeping me inside! I can't wait for the first sunny few days in the Catskills now!

    Heck of a website alright! The "Bug Pundit" shirt is great, I might have to get one. Sure would draw some odd looks in the grocery store though. That and i'm not really a bug pundit. More of a caddis fan myself. Love the fact that theres basically two categories of the underwater version, and you just need to get the size right for the adult.

    I suppose my oversimplification may be offensive to such an expert as yourself, but I like simple, active bugs that trout gobble up with wild abandon.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    I'm glad you like the Bug Pundit shirt! I'm thinking of ordering one for myself, too. And when I get around to it I want to put those bug stickers all over my little troutmobile.

    Have you read LaFontaine's Caddisflies? You won't look at them quite the same way again! You're right that they always seem pretty simple... just a few stages to match. But sometimes it just seems like nothing works during certain caddis activity. With the help of that book I'm just starting to get a grip on why.
