Hendrickson Wets

I’ve read that it’s Hendrickson season. 

So, for my next outing, I’ll be chucking some Hendrickson wet flies. I’ve read that before a hatch, there’s a lot of activity happening sub-surface, and wets are the way to go.
Below, are some flies I’ve tied up.

The recipe is pretty simple:

  • #14 nymph hook
  • Brown thread
  • Tan squirrel for the body
  • Coq de Leon for the tail
  • Wood duck mallard for the wings
  • For the hackle, I used a quail feather for one and brown hackle for the other two

I’m looking forward to it.

  1. Nice! I just (last night) tied up some Hendrickson / Castskill style dry flies. Think i used #14 + #16 (I ran out of #18) dry hooks

  2. Hey Troy , I just found your blog & I really like it because I fly fish. The real weird thing is I noticed you live in Stoneham. I grew up in Stoneham off of Franklin St on the Melrose Line. I got married & moved across the state to Pittsfield17 years ago

    1. Hey DryFlyGuy! Glad you enjoy the blog! As you may have found out, I no longer live in Stoneham, or even Massachusetts. I moved to CA this year. Jo has been doing any of the great reports you have read, as I can't really report from out of state.

      And Stoneham is where it's at!! Surprisingly good fishing nearby it.
