Hex Mayflies
Hexagenia limbata

The famous nocturnal Hex hatch of the Midwest (and a few other lucky locations) stirs to the surface mythically large Brown Trout that only touch streamers for the rest of the year.

True Bug Family Cicadellidae (Leafhoppers)

These widely varied terrestrial insects sometimes accidentally jump into trout streams. I have heard of trout being selective to them, but it is not very common. Anglers often call them jassids.

They are very small and are best imitated on hooks sized 22 or smaller. They can be treated the same, from the angler's point of view, as the Membracidae family of leaf hoppers.
