Too many variations even from one drainage to the next.

Specially color, size, and timing. That's why the biological markers make things a lot easier. Wings plane or mottled, hind wing absent, small, or large, and 2 or 3 tails.

That alone gets you down to, typically, 5 or 6 genuses. From there, things are sometimes easy, sometimes not.

I'm pretty decent at getting genus, much more difficult to get species.

These photos are from August 3, 2010 on Slippery Rock Creek. I've bumped into hex's several times trying to hit the whitefly hatch there.

I suspect that wgmiller and and turkey have photographed the same bug, and I'm pretty certain that turkey's pic is of a Hex. Turkey's bug very clearly has two tails, and Pittsburgh is known to have heavy hex hatches at times during the summer.

Cool pics guys, I'm impressed. Didn't know SRC had hexes, but I guess I shouldn't surprised.

I've been chasing HEX in Michigan for the past 6 summers with some epic trips. I've also found them on SRC during the white flies. Failed this year on the Allegheny in Pittsburgh.

I'm only seeing 2 tails and I think given where it was photographed it couldn't possibly be a yellow drake because they like pristine water, like DH Creek.

The object of a resource is to use and reuse a resource, not to use it up, have we learned nothing in over 125 years of stocking?

I was in Erie roughly 12 years ago on a summer night and there was what i am assuming was a hex hatch. The entire city was covered in these things. It looked like a biblical plague. I can only imagine what the fishing would have been like that night.

This guy (male spinner) was captured while I was on a golf course in Eastern PA with a small trickle running through it. The trickle ran out of a small pond. The date was August 18.

Sorry for the poor quality image, I hate having to downsize images.
