I'm headed up to the Adirondacks tomorrow for a two week trip, and I was planning to spend most of my time on the West Branch of the Ausable. With that said, I got a call from a friend who lives up there last night, telling me the Hex hatch was on on the ponds. This is a fly I've never encountered before, but he said they are really large , something like #6 or #8, so I thought it might be worth checking out. Does anyone know of any good dry fly patterns to imitate them? Also, what time of day do they usually come off?
