Hendricksons are the first great hatch of the season in my area of Western NY. The bugs are big and the fish enjoy coming up for them. This hatch is nice for beginner fly fisherman to get their first fish on a dry, so if you are new and interested in trying out dry fly fishing now is the time! When tying a pattern make sure it is the right size and giving off an accurate profile first before getting into the many other picky details. A good drift with the right sized fly is often rewarded.
