this is the first season that i got to fish the grannom hatch and do not have anything that worked so far. do you guys have a good dry fly pattern that works and could share a pic?

also, are the grannoms just an early caddis hatch? i see caddis hatching all the time through out the year...what is special about the grannom? what are they called after the grannom and before the fall october caddis?

thank you!

The American grannom ( Brachycentrus Lateralis) One of the "super hatches"
Feeding: scraper/collector
Likes fast to moderate current
Locally size 14, color brownish/black
When laying eggs it's surface & subsurface
A wet or a diving pattern wouldn't be bad to have along with a dry

dark brown body, black hackle and natural elk for the dry.

Partridge and peacock wet.


That's all you need.

Talked to the guys at ffp they're saying grannoms are done or very close. Sulphurs are making a showing, along with crane flies. With tan caddies to follow.

X caddis.... I use tan CDC for the shuck, tan or olive UV dubbin, and I use caribou instead of elk for the wing. Deadly
