Trout Lake Report: Hex Are Here

A wonderful day at the lake. Working the green shoreline with a little muddler. Picking up one beautiful fish after another. Could it get any better than that?

Yes. Big news is the first sighting of the Hex mayfly. When hatches get good, and fish get on them, there's nothing like it. Fish not on them yet. No rises at all, but tied on a Hex fly right away, fished it the rest of the time. Managed two splashy hits, but small fry that missed.

But it has begun....


  1. Beautiful. Can it get any better? I like how the Muddler is starting to look like an old pair of jeans or something. Kind of worn and tattered but fitting the bill just right. The shots of the bugs are great.

  2. The right fly for sure. Beautiful photos.
