Ecuador, trout streams...

Hi Juro and Co,

A friend of mine is in Ecuador at the moment. He is doing a bit of work in a research station in high montane/cloud rain forest.
He was telling me about streams which harbour trout;
"It seems there are trout in there, and i did a quick sample of the rocks and found some mayfly, stonefly, and some things that resemble caddis fly casings. The most prevalent species is something that resembles a hydroid, but has a characteristic flip-flop movement (head over heals motion)."
You heard it hear first, folks.
He has been given first bite at the cherry in terms of studying these streams. Or rather he believes that is the case. He is having difficulty gettng books/papers at his presnt location. I am e-mailing him as much as I can, I was just wondering if anyone of you well travelled, eclectic types might have something useful to say, any information or any advice. Have any of you flicked a fly in Ecuador?
I have discovered(in a book) that there are over 2000 sp. of freshwater fish in Ecuador. The rainbow was introduced, not sure where or when, but as he is not too far from Quito it is most likely that the trouty things he saw were rainbows.
In return for help etc. if anyone has questions for Gearoid, post them to the board and I will forward them to him...
Mylo
PS poor ole Gerry never packed a rod...
