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.

Cinygmula subaequalis (Small Gordon Quill) Mayfly Nymph Pictures

This nymph is missing a few gills, but is otherwise in good shape. It was the only one of its species which turned up in my sample.

This mayfly was collected from Paradise Creek in Pennsylvania on May 29th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 4th, 2007.
