Sulphers Among Drakes

“While the green drake is a hatch to behold and the size of the fly is amazingly large, best imitated on a size 10 (2x long hook, 18-22 mm), the pale and much smaller sulphur, size 16 to 18 hook (6-9 mm), is the fly most trout key in on even when they collide with the much chunkier and meatier green drake.” Dave Wolf talks about the sulpher hatch on eastern U.S. streams and how, though it often takes second stage to the green drake, is fishable even when the big bugs are on the water.
