Hex Mayflies

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.

Female Baetidae (Blue-Winged Olives) Mayfly Dun Pictures

I captured this dun on the same night as a spinner which is probably of the same species.

This mayfly was collected from the West Branch of Owego Creek in New York on August 9th, 2006 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on August 11th, 2006.
