Merwin: How to Fish the Trico Hatch

MidCurrent editorial board member and Field & Stream editor John Merwin writes about how to best take advantage of the glorious Tricorythodes mayfly hatches of August.

“As to my own trico fishing, 6X tippets are the general rule; sometimes 7X with the smallest of flies. I’ll walk the banks or wade very slowly (making no ripples), while searching for rising fish. Risers tend to stay on top, sipping sometimes in rapid rhythm. Time your fly’s drag-free drift to match the rhythm of the rises.”
