The mayfly hatch is a fascinating time of the year for fly fishing, as fish such as trout throw themselves at any fly (artifical fly or not) and feed ferociously.
Hatches are plentiful now days are becoming warmer, and the fish forget their dangers as they feast upon this ample food source.
Adult mayflies have a very short life span, their primary purpose is to reproduce. The shortest of the mayfly species lives under 5 minutes! Because of this they don’t have usable mouths and their digestive systems are filled with air.
After their spectacular hatches, the swarms end their lives on the water. A great opportunity for fisherman to mimic these flies while trout are actively feeding upon them, and undoubtedly the high point of the fly fishing season with the chance to see many spectacular catches!
