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.

Mark's Winter Baetis Emerger Trout Fly Winter Baetis Mayflies can be very dark colored. Many nymphs are jet black. The outer skin of the nymph is transparent olive. It is stretched over the dark colored insect inside. As the nymph swims to the surface the adult insect is already separating itself from the nypmphal shuck. Bright green bands form at each abdominal segment. As the skin splits down the back of the head and between the wing pads of the nymph, the dun starts to emerge through this...

Many mayflies that in the dun stage are yellowish or pinkish color in the dun stage, turn mahogany color in the spinner stage. 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...

Jack Dennis from Jackson Hole, WY combined the Wulff and Parachute styles of flies by using the second wing of the Wulff as a second parachute post to wrap a hackle around. This gives double the visibility to the angler and double the floatation for the fly. The ParaWulff, although exceptionally difficult to tie, became very popular because it made fishing rough water easier. Why the purple body color? Some angler believe that trout can see ultra-violet colors that we can't see. It works! ...
