I noticed green grass beginning to grow the last couple of days. That can only mean one thing…it’s SPRING. Longer and warmer days also brings out more bugs for us to imitate. Beside the obvious March Brown, there is an important hatch on many rivers of the first large stonefly of the season. Yes, the Skwala is hatching.
Last night at my local club’s Winter Fly Tying, we tied a few Skwalas:
Here is another pattern from last year I’ve heard works as well.
Try some of these Skwalas out and let me know if they work.
The peacock Madam X works well. Skwalas were out today and the fish were coming up for me.
Thanks for the comment Arik. I think the Peacock Madam X would be a great fly to try!
