Designed by Lincoln Gray, Sales Manager of Sierra Stream and Mountain in Chico, CA . Lincoln operates a stillwater flyfishing school on Lake Almanor and has been developing a series of hex patterns based upon his 20 years of fishing this lake. Most of the patterns have been a collaborative effort between Lincoln and his twin brother, Lance. An excellent article on Lincoln's fly patterns, written by Tim Warriner, was published by Fly Tyer Magazine in Summer 2008. You can read it from this link: The Hex is On
Gray's Hex Nymph is used in tandem with Gray's TS Bugger. The Bugger pattern is positioned about 12-15 inches behind the nymph and stripped slowly with a sinking or intermediate line.
