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 Skwala nymph still has a couple months left to go before hatching, but it's still a good representative of its species, which was extremely abundant in my sample for a stonefly of this size. It's obvious why the Yakima is known for its Skwala hatch.
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.

I was wondering if it's alright to sale fly fishing gear on this site? I have a Pflueger summit fly rod 7wt, 8'6" with a case, I'm looking to sale it..

Well don't you think you should of bounced that off the site owner, Jason, before posting the thread? His email is located at the very bottom of this page. There are numerous other FF sites that have swap boards. One of them I recently used and sold two rods, three reels, all sorts of fly boxes, and other stuff.
