Size: 18 mm / approx 3/4 in 4 Hook: J:son NP #12

Many mayfly nymphs are darkbrown to olive in color. Not a surprise, just take a look at the bottom of most creeks, rivers, lakes and streams. It gives them a great camouflage. This nymph in size 3 is a great pattern that works on many occasions. As an example it imitates large sized BWO's, also known as Baetis.

We recommend that you use a J:son Swivel for all your fly fishing, no matter what type of fly you are using. However, it is necessary to use a J:son Swivel when ever you fish a size 1 or 2 J:son fly.

Mayfly Dun 2 Olive Grey

The stage of the new hatched adult mayfly is called Dun. Depending on surronding circumstances such as temperature, wind and weather, the time it takes before the Dun are able to fly away from the surface will vary. These new hatched mayflies are often an easy target for the fish. In this stage a mayfly is vulnerable and many will end up in Mr. Browntrout’s stomach. When the hatching is frequent, many fish species might become selective and only feed on Dun’s. As a fly fisherman you will need to use imitations of the real insect. The fly needs to have the right shape, size, proportions, colours and not least, leave the right prints on the surface of the wate

Caddis Adult 3 Black

Adult caddis flies are found in both still and moving water. Adult caddis flies is most common to find on the water during the time when they hatch or the female lay her eggs. Most adult caddis flies have a dark colour. The wings are either spotted or coloured in the same colour as the body. When they move across the surface after they have hatched or lay their eggs, they often do it with impressive speed. They almost look like small racing boats. An egg laying caddis is usually harder for the fish to catch then a new hatched one. Just as with the largest mayflies, a hatch of large sized caddis flies will attract big fish to feed in the surface.
