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.Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk.

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. I like to carry a pair of high resolutions binoculars to scan the water and identify what trout are actually feeding on. My binoculars have been the downfall of may picky, selective trout.Organza spinners don't have a lot of flotation, and they must be dressed carefully with...

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...

Organza Mayfly Spinners

Fishing flies that match mayfly  spinners are displayed with a coin to give reference  size.

Organza is a thin, sheer fabric traditionally made from silk. Many modern organzas are woven with synthetic filament fibers such as polyester or nylon. Traditionally a fabric used to make brides and harem women more attractive, organza has found favor with fly tyers for several applications such as the clear spent wings of mayfly spinners. The fabric is cut in narrow strips with the fibers running parallel, then the strip is tied crosswise of the hook. After the rest of the fly is tied, the cross fibers are easily picked out to leave only the fibers that were tied perpendicular to the hook. These clear crinkled fibers are lightweight and when treated with floatant, will support the fly on the surface of calm water. The crinkles in the fibers give a sparkly effect just like real clear mayfly spinner wings. Organza fibers have become the most popular material for this application.
