The Story

An early season mayfly, the Paraleptophlebia comes off after the water temperature rises above 50 degrees and stays there for a few days. This is generally the first mayfly hatch of the season, followed by the Quill Gordons and then the Hendricksons. These small dry flies are fished with light tippets. The Blue Quill offers you the first action of late winter and early spring for trout. Color, Natural.

Sizes: 14, 16, 18.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good early season pattern This is a good early season pattern to have in your box. You may not always use them but when you see these flies on the water you need them in your box. I use sizes 12 and 14.
