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.

With a bit of help from the microscope, this specimen keys clearly and unsurprisingly to Hydropsyche.
27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.
Troutnut is a project started in 2003 by salmonid ecologist Jason "Troutnut" Neuswanger to help anglers and fly tyers unabashedly embrace the entomological side of the sport. Learn more about Troutnut or support the project for an enhanced experience here.

Hi guys,

I've been seeing a lot of posts and topics (from several users) that are edited to say "double post deleted" or something to that effect when you accidentally click the submit button twice. (My bad for not programming it to ignore extra clicks.)

Anyway, just so you're all aware, you can delete topics and posts you've created by accident. For topics, there's a "Delete Topic" link above the top post on the page. For posts, there's a black trash can in the upper right corner of the post, next to the "edit" scissors. Click that to delete the post.
