Brown Drake Spinner

The Brown Drake, or emphemera simulans, is a large mayfly that is widely distributed across the U.S. Hatches occur in June in the Midwest and East, July or later in the West. Brown Drake mating swarms are indeed impressive to behold. Patience is the key here as spinner falls are often quite unpredictable. The reward is well worth the wait. See also: the emerger, comparadun, and cripple patterns, as well as the Brown Drake Set. Tied on a Daiichi 1280 (barbed or de-barbed) 2x long chemically sharpened dry fly hook.
