Greetings from Green Bay, Wisconsin, U.S.A. I've just discovered your page and am enjoying it. There is alot of information."

This was my first encounter ever with Jim Hauer from Wisconsin. Jim contacted me after having seen my web-page, and we have since built up one of these 'virtual friendships' that the Internet is so good at hosting.

Jim has many times told me about the local fishing, and he has sent me the flies he fishes: Hornberger, Flex-Hex and The Terror of The Tomorrow amongst many others in exchange for some of my local sea trout flies.

One river seems to pop up ocasionally in Jim's writings: The Tomorrow. And when Jim told me about the Hexagenia hatch on the Tomorrow in the story told here, I just had to put it online: Doing the Limbata

In a supplement to the article, Jim gets a lot of help from John Nebel, the man behind the Flex-Hex.

It's been a while since I have heard from Jim, and it's probably unlikely that he sees your comment. He has never submitted the pattern description for the foam emerger in the picture, so you might have to look elsewhere for such a pattern.

Hello! I saw the picture of your hex foam emerger, but have not seen the recipe anywhere. Would you please email it to me?

I am the owner of the property that Jim writes about on the banks of the Tomorrow River.
