That one's a little easier, and deserves it's own thread.

Ephemerella Subvaria - Hendrickson

with egg sac

It's a widespread species, Penns is famous for em, timing is perfect.

Yup. I love Hendricksons. Not because I've had great fishing or anything. But because I'm a hatch chasing junkie. Coming out of the long winter, March brings a little excitement with the BWO's (Baetis variety). But they fade off and then you have a few weeks of nothingness again. A little of this, a little of that, and something might surprise ya. But nothing in any numbers that you can go chase and kind of count on. Yet, at that time, you're so ready to go chase something.

Then come the Hendricksons, and spring is truly here. The major PA hatches coming forth will all overlap, and you have the best month of fishing just ahead of you. And from that point till October or so, you won't be without a major hatch to chase.

That said, a lot of people feel the same about the grannoms, which precede and sometimes overlap with the Hendricksons. Grannoms always allude me somehow, I catch the tail or something but never the main event.

Hendricson and/or Grannoms, the thing is, they have banker's hours. No need to be one the stream @ daylight, although I sometimes am. I have no preference for one over the other, both can be frantastic, IMO

March Browns are by far my favorite hatch. Big enough and not all they heavy a hatch. they must taste great b/c you can get fish to move several feet to take an inaccurate cast. Mostly daylight fishing too which is nice for those of us that have bad eyesight.

Agree that they must taste like MSG to the fish. Whenever they are present, I think it's a decent idea to prospect with a MB dun. Most of my nicer dry fly fish have come that way.

Now I just gotta figure out what I'm going to match with all these eastern MB (as well as GD, hendrickson, and a few others) patterns out here. I suspect they will go in the cuttie box until I find a more proper use for them.

Lots of nifty one of a kind experimental flies in the mix, otherwise I would donate to the youth group or trade with other board members. Upright cdc cut winged no hackles and whatnot. Gotta test thoroughly before I release into the wild. A few of them might not even float.

This was one I came across on Kettle Creek on April 27, 2010 at about 3:00 pm. Again size #14 or even maybe a #12. It was a cool an sunny day.


I was camped at Ole Bull that week, so I checked my journal.
I noted Midges, P. adoptiva, E. subvaria and a few M. vicarium on that day, on Kettle.

I don't know for sure if I'm correct, but I agree with dkile and pcray

No worries, no need to match hatches out there since the fish will hit just about anything that floats or drifts in front of them. Meh...not much of a sport. Real FFers fish PA.

Call me whatever you want. I think I will manage to find some trout in this cruel exile.

The eyes in the original post aren't the correct color for a march brown, a march browns eyes are a pale robins egg blue. Having said that; a march brown imitation would probably work for that fly.

Not always, color variations (even the eye color) are very common. Dave K's Pic and two March Brown Duns from Troutnut.com

Male vs. female, plus freshly molted vs. "old" can both affect eye color.
