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.

Male Ephemera guttulata (Green Drake) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

This spinner was the only member of its species I saw all night during an incredibly thick and tricky mixed hatch on Penn's Creek a few days before the real start of its famous green drake hatch.

This mayfly was collected from Penn's Creek in Pennsylvania on May 26th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 4th, 2007.
