Hendricksons, Cahills & Red Quills

The Hendrickson mayflies (Ephemerella) hatch occurs mainly in the spring and early summer, with spinner falls that can be impressive. Sizes range from #10-18. Body color can vary from tan to red/brown, with a dun colored wing. A Red Quill is often a good fly to match this hatch.

Cahills (Maccaffertium ithica, Stenonema femoratum, Stenacron interpunctatum) hatch midseason, with light colored bodies, which become lighter as the season progresses. Spinner falls generally occur later in the day. Size of the dun and spinner range from #12-16
