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.

I recently went on a Fly-Fishing Vacation to the Eastern Sierras of CA where I met with fellow anglers from our fly-fishing club named... Amador Fly Fishers. I brought along a new addition to my cameras, a Nikon Coolpix Waterproof Camera. I was quite impressed with the results, as can be seen above... a 14" Rainbow.

Don, very nice photo. I will to check that camera out, while I don't have the talent for taking pics like some you guys I would like something besides cell phone pics. Please show more examples of pictures and maybe some thoughts on this camera.

I did a fair amount of research on waterproof cameras before I purchased this model. For a point-and-shoot camera, it does a remarkable job. And the GPS tagging is a very useful feature that is included in the camera. Considering all the features, including 1080P Video, its a lot of camera for the price. I would recommend this model to any fisherman that wants a feature rich reliable camera... that can take the water and keep shooting.

Nice pic. It shows how well equipped the fish can be for camouflage too.

They are very capable of hiding next to rocks in the dark zones. But, they love Humpy's and almost always fall for this pattern on that river.
