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.

Ephemerella (Hendricksons, Sulphurs, PMDs) Mayfly Nymph Pictures

The striking coloration of this Ephemerella nymph earned it a turn under the camera lens. It has a different look than others I've collected, but I still might tentatively guess it belongs to the widely variable (and ironically named) invaria species.

This mayfly was collected from Cayuta Creek in New York on April 14th, 2007 and added to Troutnut.com by Troutnut on April 22nd, 2007.
