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 one seems to lead to Couplet 35 of the Key to Genera of Perlodidae Nymphs and the genus Isoperla, but I'm skeptical that's correct based on the general look. I need to get it under the microscope to review several choices in the key, and it'll probably end up a different Perlodidae.
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.

Hello, fellow anglers,
I am a part of a YouTube project with the aim of providing top-notch content to our viewers and there are no better people to ask for help than the viewers themselves.
No, I am not asking for you to subscribe, like, or share the content!! However, I would be very happy if you were to leave your honest opinion on our videos and where we could improve, that would be very appreciated.

F.Y.I. Most of the videos are not in English, however, all of the recent ones and all future ones will include ENGLISH SUBTITLES so everyone can enjoy the content.
We currently have 3 kinds of videos coming out, those being Fly Tying Tutorials, One Minute Ties (Short videos showing how to tie flies) and Fly Fishing adventures that focus on our fishing trips, here are some examples:

Fly Tying Tutorial:

One Minute Ties:

Fly Fishing Adventures:

What do you think of these concepts? Any ideas to improve?

Hello museline,

I'm going to be 100% candid - there are thousands of very good fly tying video tutorials on YouTube in ENGLISH. I speak English, not Spanish, French,or any Middle European langauge. I don't care how good your videography is I personally have zero interest in viewing a foreign language fly tying video AND trying to keep up reading the English sub titles. I'd venture to bet not many English only readers will be subscribung to your new channel.
