Since the QG supposedly exits it's nymphal shell underwater, the wet fly technique ought to be effective. You will have a lot of pupils that weekend.

http://fishermonk.com/

Since I cannot link to the page and navigation is complicated at that site, I re-print with hoped for acquiescence, the following details:

Epeorus pleuralis
(This is a mayfly species endemic to North America)
COMMON NAMES: Quill Gordon, Gordon Quill, Dark Gordon Quill.


Emergence of E. pleuralis usually marks the beginning of good dry-fly fishing in the Eastern USA.
=========================================================
NYMPH:
Size: 9 - 11 mm.
Num. tails: 2
Tails: tan with dark specks
Body: dark grayish brown
Wing Cases: dark brownish black
Legs: tan, mottled with brown
Found in water: fast.
Range: East.
Lifestyle: clinger
Other: E. pleuralis nymphs have large, distinct, abdominal gills used as suction cups for clinging to rocks in fast water.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DUN:
Size: 9 - 11 mm.
Num. Tails: 2
Tails: tan
Body: yellow, mottled with brown
Hind Wings: medium
Wings: slate gray
Legs: tan with dark brown mottlings
Emergence: third week in April to third week in May
Time of Hatch: noon to dusk.
Notes: E. pleuralis duns emerge underwater, often during cold weather, making an emerger pattern very effective.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
SPINNER:
Size: 9 - 11 mm.
Num. Tails: 2
Tails: dark brown
Body: yellow, mottled with brown
Hind Wings: medium
Wings: hyaline (clear)
Legs: tan with dark brown mottlings
Time of Spinner Fall: From midmorning to midafternoon.
Notes:: Spinners usually fall at midday.
=========================================================

Not offended. No worries.

Hey Jack, did you read that the stickers are free! You can take one and put it over the Mickey Mouse logo on your waders to impress all the Jammers.

Anyway, good job guys. I can't remember the last time I fished a QG hatch. I have all winter to think about and look forward to this Jam. Thanks.

I was chewing the fat w/ my dad last night and he's interested in attending this as well. He doesn't post on the boards, but he's always looking for excuses to get up to Potter for fly fishing. He has never caughta QG hatch either.

Just a throw out. Sweden Valley Inn has fantastic food, I remember having one of the best steaks I ever had there.

Potato City is right across from the campground and is also a very good place to eat.

Potato City SUCKS. It just got real crusty dude. Really fast. Last time we ate there, they had flies dropping off into the food. Terrible.

Sylvania Diner is where its at! Haven't been at Sweden Valley in quite a few years.

The idea was Jack's, Dave. Something about getting lost in those hills for a couple days... He just egged a few of us to finally step up and set the time and place! So many of us love the area. I'm looking forward to it.

All these years I've never fished a QG hatch, so this sounds like a good idea to me!

Paul I think chasing the bug itself is more of a draw than chasing the fish for this event!

Depending on how my class schedule is for the Spring, I'll attend. It's not too far from me and it's some of my favorite areas to fish.
