Believe it or not, I rarely target the Hendrickson hatch or spinner fall.
In the spring, I’m usually off the water by noon due to family commitments. It makes for good nymphing time, but I’ve yet to witness Hendricksons popping.
In a few weeks, thanks to Joe Drake’s initiative, our blog team will be fishing together. I have the hall pass to fish all day. So, I hope to see afternoon Hendrickson activity.
Any patterns you’d recommend?
To get ready, I’ve done some online research. It is a dizzying amount of information! Troutnut.com was particularly helpful.
Here is a size 12 nymph with legs, a light-colored mid-band and some split tails.
Here is a size 12 Steve Culton wet fly.
Any feedback would be great.
