About the Wonder Wing Mayfly Trout Fly
The mayfly hatch is a fascinating time of the year. Although it would seem that the trout will throw themselves at any fly, there are times when only specific patterns will work.
An easy way to gauge approximate proportions when tying our large Mayflies is to think of 3 inches.
1 inch - length of the tail
1 inch - length of the body
1 inch - height of the wings
