Mayflies

Is there anything more exciting than fishing Mayflies during a hatch, your floating line drifting down the river with a tapered leader and bang!  Be sure to pause before you strike or the trout may spit it back out, there is an old wives tale that you should say, 'God save the Queen' before you strike.  Mayflies although mostly associated with the Month of May they can also catch fish from April and into June.  During a hatch the trout will work themselves into a frenzy, so much so that it can be known as 'Duffers Fortnight' as anyone could catch during a hatch!  Mostly associated with hard water chalk streams they can take fish in still waters especially the loughs of Ireland, in the US they can even cause traffic problems during a hatch their are that many of them.
