Default Crane Fly Hatch today

Click the image to open in full size.

The trout were going crazy.

The larva were struggling to change to insects on the surface.

They had a little yellow tint to them.

My buddy John knew exactly what to throw.

He put on a cinnamon caddis and put a dropped off of it.

the dropper was 5x.

He fished it subsurface upstream.

The fish pounded it.

He lost 2 very nice trout ...

He stayed in one place and fished for almost 2 hours.

15 browns to hand and almost 40 other hits and 13 long line releases.


WHAT did he use as a crane fly imitation?

I know....

What do you think he used?

He used exactly these.

We went back the next day


We went during the same time frame of the hatch and a little
downstream where there was deeper water.. The hatch started
one hour later due to a cloud cover.
