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.

This one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

FYI...

Any College guys looking to spend your summer on the fabled Madison River near West Yellowstone, MT there are a couple of openings at Campfire Lodge Resort. Includes room, meals and a salary. (If I were in college I would go for it in a flash!)

I am doing some web work for the new owner Jim Slattery and he mentioned he his looking for a summer help, so I thought about posting it here. The river is awesome and the scenery is spectacular!

See www.CampfireLodgeWestYellowstone.com to learn some more about the lodge. The web site is still under construction as Jim has time to gather and send me the info. You can call Jim at(406) 646-7258, if interested.

Dang. I'm stuck in Texas at the Prairie Chicken refuge but I would do that in a heartbeat.

How skilled do you have to be and how long is it for?

I actually work at a campground in the summer, heck I would rather work at that Campground and be flyfishing all the time then be at the one I'm at now.

I will be looking for a summer job once the first summer session of college is out here. But that is a far drive for me.
