Hendrickson Mayfly Mating Dance Mayfly Spinners Spinnerfall Dry Fly Fishing

Hard to see, but this was a massive hendrickson mayfly mating dance early in June of 2008. Mayflies hatch from the stream at certain times of the year and sometimes hatches overlap making it difficult for the fly fisher to decipher which fly to use. After a period of time, the mayflies that hatched enter a different phase of life. They congregate above the stream as a cloud of madness in a mating frenzy. Eventually you have the event that fly fishers wait for….the may fly spinnerfall.
