Some people call these the anglers curse, when they are in the air sometimes it’s better to sit and watch as they usually hatch in abundance and the fish have a feast but matching this tiny hatch can still be good sport if you can cast it delicately and present it just up stream of feeding fish. It’s a small pattern to tie and can be fiddly but Matthew will show you how and using his method makes it seem simple even on a size 20 hook.

After you are done you are good to go on those warm summer evenings when it's sometimes feels like its impossible to match this micro hatch.
