Default Re: Mayfly Hatch

I carry a few different patterns, but fish Blue-Winged Olive, Adams, and Light Cahills. I also use deer or elk hair Caddis, and have lately been using X-Caddis flies. The X-Caddis has the fish going nuts! I narrowed down my dry flies after
reading an article by Lefty Kreh 5-6 years ago. He uses Adams for dark flies, and Light Cahills for light flies. Dave Hughes also recommends these two flies, along with the blue-winged olive for a simplified dry fly selection. I tie 99.9% of my Adams, Cahills, and BWO's parachute style. Parachute allows the body to sit in the water, and that's how I see most insects.
