Hexegenia Limbata, a moonlight dance

Fishing for rainbow trout feeding on a Hexegenia hatch. This is my first time fishing a hex hatch and I am surprised to learn that the fish don’t come to life until just before dark. So we wait for rises. It is the moon’s ascent that captures me…and for the remainder of the evening the trout seem secondary. Which is convenient. I didn’t catch a thing on my hex fakery.

    1. I am always amazed to see how fast the moon rises…must be like watching kids grow. The other cause for amazement and victory was that I did not catch myself shooting hooks around in the dark!
