+1 on the Hex. Here is one I pulled off of a gas pump at the Sheetz at Clarks Ferry last week.

Hex. Known from coming off of big rivers, but have been seen in smaller systems.


I believe they're the biggest mayfly in PA.

The yellow hex is a HUGE fly (close to 4” long from front of legs to ends of tails). I’ve been fishing a stream with an incredible hex hatch for the last 35 years (there was a great hex hatch last Friday night) and I tie my hex imitations on a size 8 and 10 4x long streamer hooks.

They are that big.

Claspers are on the rear of the abdomen (near tail) on the underside of the male spinner, used for mating. Hooking up!

Who knew the contemporary term for having sex in the younger generations vocabulary came from mayflys?

The front legs are called forelegs.

Cigarettes are called cancer sticks or coffin nails. Not to be confused with coffin flys.

hex for sure... i have fished hexes on certain section of the Lil Lehigh, there are two sizes of em too usually start hatching end of june sometimes hatch is off an on till third week of july.
Fished it with Joe Kohler who showed me where they hatch and gave me sizes to tie.Used a butterfly net to get samples...been years since i fished that hatch.the darn bugs get spotted on radar because the hatch is that enormous in numbers.Kinda like the bridges that get closed when the white fly hatch is on the Susuquehanna.
Awesome pics thanx for sharing borught back some really great memories.
