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.

Hey, I just decided to join in on the discussions here and wanted to introduce myself. I'm addicted to fishing/tying and, like most, wish I had more time for these. I enjoy exploring many techniques in fishing the fly, from miniature dries to 5" streamers. I have been a member of some other fishing boards that have a lot of negativity and I like the positive vibe found here. I look forward to contributing to constructive disccusions and sharing my flies. Thanks for providing such a nice resource.
