     Trout Flies: Hendrickson - Reversed Hackle Burnt Wing

    Fly Tying Patterns  Hendrickson - Reversed Hackle Burnt Wing was developed by well known Michigan  tier and fly fishermen,  Chauncy Lively. Chauncy  had lived on the banks of the North Branch of the Au Sable River for almost 40 years and had developed many unique patterns which can be found in a book justly named Chauncy Lively's FlyBox, by Stackpole Books.  He was a longtime FFF member, TU member,  and Anglers of the Au Sable board member as well. He is very fondly remembered by many older Au Sable anglers and was  an important caretaker of this wonderful resource.

     Trout Flies: Hendrickson Nymph

    Fly Tying Patterns  Hendrickson nymph's are one of the most abundant nymphs found in our Michigan streams. A study was performed by a entomologist who once surveyed a section on the North Branch of the Au Sable River,  in Michigan and he found in a one square foot of river bottom over 1000 of these nymphs! They can be fished all year round and as spring nears the steams swell with snow melt and rain so weighting them may be helpful, they are also a great searching pattern.

     Trout Flies: Michigan Trout - Opening Day and the Mayfly

    Fly Fishing News  flyguy writes "

    Most of us fly-fishing enthusiasts, who can't spend the winter catching fish, catch other aspects of fly-fishing life to tide us over till that splendid day we so fondly know as 'opening day'. We do a lot of tying, spinning out both new and familiar patterns. There's also a good amount of reading available to us - from pattern details to fishing stories straight from the bull, doesn't matter, if it smells like a river, were in it.

    There's also good coffee and banter to be had at the fly shops as we restock on supplies. It's also a good time to go to our fly-fishing club meetings and events, thanks to groups like MFFC, TU, and FFF who get us through our winter withdrawals.

    Many of us spend endless hours tying our favorite patterns or trying our hand at new ones, all the while dreaming of a cherished stretch of river or things like the big one that got away, and how we'll make up for it!

     Trout Flies: Hendrickson Transitional Nymph (Emerger)

    Fly Tying Patterns  

     The Hedrickson Transitional CDC  Nymph is an excellent trout pattern to use for the ephemerella subvaria  emergence (Hendrickson) here in Michigan. The use of CDC in mayfly patterns like this one, was originated by Rene Harrop. Rene is the proprietor of the House of Harrop which can be found on the Henry's Fork in Island Park, Idaho. While this pattern originated in the west, it can generate excellent results here in Michigan or anywhere Hendrickson hatches occur.
