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.

It’s not too late to get the Dads in your lives who love to fish a great gift. Give Dad a Trout Unlimited gift membership this Father’s Day and we'll also send him our guide to America's 100 Best Trout Streams.
Skip the frantic crowds at the mall this weekend, enjoy the outdoors instead, and still get the men who mean so much to you a great Father’s Day gift.
Each $35.00 TU Gift Membership includes these great benefits:

(Edit by Troutnut: This is a great example of the kind of overly blatant advertising I want to keep off the forum, but since it's TU I'll allow it.)

Well even TU should ask permission before spamming a web site. Most forums are getting sick of spammers. I for one will not support anyone who is spamming.

It's probably not an actual TU guy posting, but a marketing firm guy they hired to promote their memberships. Still, I think it's good for TU to grow, so I'll leave the link in place. I'm sure there's a disconnect between the decision-makers at TU and their marketing contractor's shady tactics, so I won't hold it against the organization just yet.
