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.

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.

Hello all,

I would like to share with all of you a step by step pattern which I published at Spanish Danica mag time ago. Due to the fact that there are twenty six steps, I think it is better to link you directly to my web site. I hope this is not against any rules of this forum. If there is any problem please feel free to take it out.

I hope you like it, AndresT.
