They're hatching now, here in Montana. A cold front just moved in. And boom. There they go.

............same fly halfway there:

This one uses the same frond of duck flank to make both abdomen and wing. You can use other wing materials. I like Senyo Laser Dub a lot. For mayfly wings.

Re> fast water

Yes that's the point. Most sparsely tied spring Creek like dry fly mayflies do not float well outside the slick/glassy water context.

I call these Right Hackle flies. You can put anything underneath, as bushy or as sparse as you want.

A long loose front to back figure right wrap underneath bastes the hackle tuft temporarily in place. Glue (any kind) fixes the hackle permanently in place.


It's a Right Hackle because the hackle fibers get glued on at right angles to the shank.

And because it's the right way to do it?
