Default Hendricksons !

hit a little tailwater yesterday for the first solid hatch this season. ive been getting a few fish on nymphs and midges but yesterday the first good emergence of hendricksons(for me atleast) made their apperance. not a huge amount of bugs but enough to get some fish feeding on top.started ouy with a parachute dry in the light coloration phase and a darker snowshoe emerger.caught the first three on the emerger, the noticed a couple refusal rises on the parachute.so i caught a natural and realized they were actually the browner darker version and a little smaller. made a quick change to a# 16 biot bodied parachute and that flipped the switch.4 of 5 mor wild browns over the next 20 mins til the bugs petered out and the fish stopped rising.pretty average fishing by alot of guys standards(9-13" browns) but they had the 4 wt thumping and made me forget about a long day at work. AHHH this is what ive been waiting 5 months for!
