Speaker: Bob Lindquist; “Mayflies 101”
Thursday March 19, 2020, Endicott Public Library, 7:00 PM (Tying demonstration at 6:30)
April will bring local rivers are alive with maturing mayflies ….. Hendricksons, Quill Gordons and Paraleps will be first to hatch. Let’s take an evening to reconnoiter this dominant food force and unpack a proven system that will help you maximize your production during mayfly hatches. Each stage of the mayfly life cycle is explored with particular emphasis paid to duns, emergers and spinners.
Mayflies are a dominant prey item of trout. The priorities of life forced the presenter to stop thinking too much and to develop a “less is more”, simplified approach to trout feeding on mayflies. Based on observation of the mayfly and the predatory trout, this simplified system focuses on:
(1) Understanding the meniscus
(2) Vulnerability and ambush points
(3) Reading rise forms
(4) The dry dropper
(5) The reach cast
