The product of another nameless originator. The Blue Wing Olive is a great pattern for imitating many common species of mayflies which occur in nearly every region of the Northern Hemisphere.

Some Callibaetis mayfly hatches result in many flies not having enough energy to make out of the nymphal shuck, thus being trapped unto death. They become easy meals for lazy trout who learn to capitalize on that situation. Dress the hackle and wing. Wet the body and tail so that they dangle through the surface.

Lucent Wing True Hex The natural above is dead, and has been for a while. It was truer to the color of the imitation, while alive. True duns mimic the hatches of smaller Hexagenia mayflies, which occur in marginal Hex habitat. Some lakes and rivers have hatches of diminutive size Hexes. What sets this pattern apart and makes it so effective is the life-like lucent wing made from soft mesh, which unfortunately is somewhat fragile. Three or four trout is the life expectancy of these flies....

Mark's Hex Emerger The Mark's Hex Emerger slowly evolved from the late 1980's to the present, and may be the deadliest of all the Hex imitations. Heagenia limata nymphs construct burrows in silty stream or lake bottoms and hatch into adults in two, sometimes three years. Emegence can happen any time of day, but is by far most apparent late in the evening and often after dark. During emergence, the natural nymphs rise quickly to the surface and quickly slip out of their shucks. While they are...

Callibaetis are the most numerous mayflies in many of the Western Hemisphere's lakes, ponds and slow moving streams. In rich alkaline lakes, these insects can hatch in such numbers to mimic clouds of smoke. Trout, bass and panfish all eat Callibaetis Mayflies in the nymph, dun and spinner stages. The Organza Wing Callibaetis Spinner is the most popular pattern for the spinner fall of these insects.  Callibaetis spinners can lay their egs and fall dead during the latter stages of a hatch...

It always pays to capture one of the real flies so that you can match it for size and color.

Many mayflies that hatch as light green or olive duns turn into spinners of the same general shades. Trout can be very picky when feeding on spinners. Especially when feeding in scum lines in slow back-eddies, trout normally find that one type of food is preferable to all others. It is always best to spend a lot of time observing your quarry before making that crucial first cast. Then you must be very precise in your fly placement in front of the fish. Putting your fly exactly in the center of...

This is the most popular color of mayfly spinner overall. It seems that many different mayflies turn this color in the spinner stage. Although most mayfly spinners are fished on the surface, they can even be more productive fished as wet flies. After mayflies mate and reproduce, both sexes quickly die. These dead spinners only float for a short period of time and then they become waterlogged and sink, where they are consumed by trout.Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from...

Certain western spring fed rivers, such as Silver Creek in Central Idaho are famous for hatches of Trico Mayflies. During the spinner falls of these tiny mayflies, trout can feed ravenously, but be very selective as to the size, shape, color and attitude of your fly. Extremely thin tippets are the rule. 7X isn't out of the question. Very lightweight rods are often used to land large trout. Down-stream drag-free presentations are the rule. During these spinner falls the Organza Wing Trico...
