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.

Libellulidae Dragonfly Adult Pictures

This specimen of Libella saturata, the flame skimmer dragonfly, is the only invertebrate in this site's collection that I caught by hook and line. It swooped down and attacked my dry fly on the Firehole River, where it lived as a nymph in the hot water near the geothermal springs and geyser runoff.

This dragonfly was collected from the Henry's Fork of the Snake River in Idaho on August 11th, 2018 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on June 12th, 2019.
