The giant Salmonflies of the Western mountains are legendary for their proclivity to elicit consistent dry-fly action and ferocious strikes.

Male Hexagenia atrocaudata (Late Hex) Mayfly Spinner Pictures

I found this spinner and a few of his friends bobbing above the river amidst a snowstorm hatch of white Ephoron flies.

This mayfly was collected from the Namekagon River in Wisconsin on August 15th, 2004 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on January 25th, 2006.
