Angler's Entomology Podcast


Welcome to the Angler's Entomology Podcast.  On this podcast and blog, I am documenting my re-entry into the world of entomology.   Join us as my wife and I explore the environment in which trout live and the insects and other creatures that live in and share that space.  This is not just a dry recitation of facts, I hope to bring these creatures alive - show you how they live, what makes them fascinating in their own right, and help you understand how they interact with trout in ways that will help your fishing.  So, please join us.  I hope you enjoy the program...

Angler's Entomology Quizup

 

Feb 15, 2017

Today we will explore the group of mayflies whose nymphs burrow - at least most of them do.  This includes some of the largest most showy (and exciting from a fly fishing perspective) mayflies - such as Hex's and the Green Drake.   As promised in the episode, here is a link to my wife's pattern, the Hexamongous - http://www.flyfishinginnh.com/forum/showthread.php?t=4222

Here is the pattern too, in case the link gets broken:

Hook: Daiichi 1270 Size#8
Thread: Brown
Tail: Wood Duck Flank
Body: Cream Rabbit Dubbing
Rib: Light Cream Floss
Back: Turkey Tail Fibers
Wing: Wood Duck (Tied in as a loop wing)
Legs/Throat: small dark under feather from wood duck - often attached to base of wood duck flank feathers (or mottled brown hen as modified in the post).
