Dry Flies?

Anybody got any advise on what kind of flies would be hatching at this time of year on the local streams?

Terrestrials are big this time of year, but mostly, it depends on your location...
try this:
click on: HATCH CHARTS

This is a hatch chart for mayflies, caddis & stone flies.

Hi Craig it sounds like your doing well on fly selection for the Thomas basin area. I'll look for your jetty someday.

I'd say that Caddis flies, and ants would be my selections for central Mass right now. There is also the possibility of small blue winged olives and various midges. Cadis pupae & nymphs should work well.

The general rule for Mayflys is the later the smaller. BWO and tricos are mostly around. The only exceptions are some isoloated march brown and isos in the 12-16 range. Caddis and midges are always around and I always keep an assortment of size and colors for them. Terrestrials work good for me this time of year too (ants)
