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 species was fairly abundant in a February sample of the upper Yakima.
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.

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."

You were, but I interceded with Jason and he agreed to finally give you access again. But no more hijinks from you and Jack!

Thank you Louis, I’m going to have a little sit-down with Jack tonight and we’re going to pour over our past transgressions. However, I don’t think Jack will take too kindly to being told to put a lid on it.

It wasn't my fault either! I think it was Gonzo's...I'm not ratting him out or anything...Just saying...:)

And Spence was banned for being a tattle-tale. Don't know what I was banned for. I've been resisting the temptation to write haiku out of season.

You know it seems like evrytime the site goes down, it's right after I post something or am in the midst of posting something, I am always sure that I broke it somehow...
