Soon be time for these. The Mayfly
I tied some of these up last night I got the size 12s and 14s done. Its good to know that the Mayfly will be hatching soon..and if this settled weather stays then we wont have long to wait. I hope that the hatch is on a par with last year. This simple pattern has worked really well for me over the years and is pretty unsinkable,,
I tie them in size 14, 12 and 10 the size 14 can at times work very well although they are smaller than the actual insect. I need to tie some size 10s then some mayfly nymphs. and maybe a few klinkhammer style emergers,
