I went out and put my new light box to the test and took some pretty sweet photos of the various spring bugs that trout eat. Here is a photo of a Skwala Stonefly that was about a size 14. Based on what I was seeing in the stream I now understand why size 14-22 pheasant tail nymphs would fool fish. Other than Skwala Stoneflies I was finding a ton of Baetis size's 18-22. Check it out!
