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.

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.

This poor image of an adult caddis was taken streamside on my pack in the Big Horn Mountains, WY at about 9,500 ft.. As the picture shows, the wings did not appear to have any spots and were tan. I am uncertain what genus exist in the area. I have observed but have not photographed the abundant encased larva there and will try to do better on my next trip, which is coming up soon. Most of the cases appear to be formed of rock and metal.

Poor or not, you don't appear to have succeeded in posting the image.
