I fished the Hex hatch for years, even before we knew what they were. The pattern we used was made using a dubbed rabbit-tail, the white underside which was a dirty white. Grizzly hackle for the hackle and tail. This was tied on a size 8 long shanked hook. Never put wings on them, as at dark you couldn't see them anyways. Boy! big brown trout were suckers for it.Always fished it at the tops of narrow runs where all the large trout use to station themselfs at dusk to about 10 PM use to be sound fishing.
