Simple Gray Mayfly

I was making some simple tutorials for my Drafting students and decided to try this. The site '' has been lacked videos. Several have ask me to do them. Here we go! Baby step. I am going to get a better camera and lighting situation.

This fly 'Simple Gray Mayfly' slays wild fish here in Western North Carolina, USA. I'm sure it would work else where. It's easy. Cheap to tie. A skein of gray knitting yarn and grizzly dry-fly hackle. It works like a charm. It is a simplification of the Adams, Thunderhead, and Mr Rapidan styled flies. Tiny creeks are it's best arena for me.

Dedicated to my son. I love you.

As always share your thoughts. I like to hear from you all :)

  1. Nice first effort, Brad. I like no wing dries. I'll give that one a try on the Beaverdam and Helton Creek.
