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 specimen resembled several others of around the same size and perhaps the same species, which were pretty common in my February sample from the upper Yakima. Unfortunately, I misplaced the specimen before I could get it under a microscope for a definitive ID.
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 have been trying to purchase a silk line to match up with a bamboo rod I built. Looking to buy a DT 6wt. I have tried contacting Cadno and Terenzio and have gotten no response. Anyone have a NIB DT 6wt that they would like to sell? Or does anyone know a US or Canadian fly shop that stocks Cadno or Terenzio fly lines?
