one of my favorites as well...
Say, maybe you can help me... Last year I got into a HUGE hatch. There were fish and bugs EVERYWHERE. big fish. I couldn't get a bite. I think it was the "carpet" nature of the hatch that made me struck out - just the sheer volume of food and the law of averages prevented me from connecting. What do you think I could have done? I tried sub-surface, moving the fly, cripples... a truly frustrating experience.
please... let me know if you have any insight.

can't be much of a help there, been in that position
and stumped as well. i throw on a cripple and hope for the best.
i'm really partial to cripples, i think they are the best choice when all else fails.

Try this....

Find a good emerger pattern, such as a Klinkhamer Special, tied in hex dressing..... it just may do the trick!

yes--hexes are here

I've guided nearly every day/night for the past two weeks and can assure you that the hexes have come to the northern lower peninsula.

The past two nights were cold and the action slowed way down in terms of bugs, but the fish still were looking up. Ric McNally had a "personal best" night on Thursday using Isonychia in late evening and then popping a couple of nice fish with a hex just before dark.

On Wednesday, Frank Janca had 30-incher (about 7 pounds) but it slipped the hook before we could get photos. Others in the 16-20" class were seen/heard/caught.

Cool again today, with forecast for rain later, so I don't know what we'll find. But hex fishing should be good for another 7 to 10 days.

Tight Loops,
CapT
