Dark Hendrickson Cripple

Ephemerella subvaria or the Dark Hendrickson is one of the season’s first major mayfly hatches. In the Northeast and upper Midwest the hatch usually lasts for 2-3 weeks. This cripple is a great fly to use on those chilly, rainy, or windy Spring days when the duns are on the water’s surface for an extended period of time. See also: Dark Hendrickson nymph, emerger, parachute, comparadun, and spinner patterns or the Dark Hendrickson Set. Tied on bent Daiichi 1190 or Tiemco 100BL (barbless) or Daiichi 1180 (barbed) chemically sharpened hooks. Please specify barbed or barbless hooks when ordering.
