Still trying to figure out what this guy is. Found him in late May with two tails. Guessing some sort of Hex, but not sure. I'm sure more to come about this one in the future.
The big bad Hex.
Gray drake on it's last leg. May is the month of choice on the Pere Marquette and Upper Manistee, to find these bugs.
A Cicada sitting along the shore of the Manistee River. Have new foam fly ideas already bouncing around in my mind.
Terrestrial fishing starts right after the Hex Hatch, July, August, and September are prime months for hoppers, beetles, crickets, and ants. One of my favorite rods for big Terristrial patterns is the Scott G2 886
