Designed by Lincoln Gray, 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.
Gray's Hex Dun is fished as a dry fly which is cast ahead of surface-feeding trout. Lincoln prefers to provide a subtle twitch to the fly to imitate a struggling hex during the hatch. The flag of Bleached Elk Hair provides a good sighting object within the dusk evenings.
