Notes: Michael Fong wrote an excellent article in Fly Fisherman magazine about the Hex hatches of Lake Almanor in the early 1990's. He attributed this pattern to local guide, Milt Jensen from Chester, CA. The pattern is basically a bundled-fiber extension body started in front of a bundled wingpost. This type of pattern can also be seen in paradrakes. You can use Deer Hair or Elk Hair, depending upon the length of the material you need.This type of pattern provides high floatibility but is also fragile. Some tiers will apply a spray fixative to the bundled extension to prevent breakage.
