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.

What's up with the Forum today? On one of Kurt's comments the word "nice" was in blue letters and underlined, then on my comment when I wrote the word "job" it too was in blue letters, underlined, and clickable. When I clicked on it a little window opens with an ad for a young woman finding a job or something.

Or is it a feature of my computer to pick out key words? I went to another Forum and saw certain other words highlited.

I've seen this on other sites Matt, it is a form of advertising, but I haven't seen it here yet.
When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."

I have had no problem yet. It could have been that some site dropped a "cookie" on your computer.
