Hatch Matchers
« on: November 10, 04:46PM »
Sorry I am reproducing some of what is already on the site but I wanted to get everything in one spot with a topic for each hatch so that viewers could find the hatch that they were looking for without scrolling through pages of posts.  Once I have everything here and if everyone is in agreement I can delete the old Hatch Matchers topic so we don't have duplication.  Feel free to transfer any of your content from the old hatch matchers topic to the appropriate topic here or let me know and I will do my best to make sure it is included.  

Gary, can you pin this so that it remains on top.  I can't seem to figure out how to do it.

Tim

I thought I would put this up as a reference.  Keep in mind that this chart is for my little neck of the woods.  I have only included hatches that I have personally encountered and it still needs work.

Hi Tim and All
As you know I'm no expert in this hatch thing - my method is to throw a black klink size 16
at them and if they don't like it - I go drink beer.
Anyway the last few nights we have a hatch of Caddis in the local brook. They come to the porch light
when BB is having her nightly stroll. A nice yellowish brown with a segmented body.
About the size of a # 14 hook.
No interest to anglers - the adults at least but there must be lots of nymphs in the brook.
Thanks for the effort to put up this data.
Paul

great chart Tim,

What are the numbers in the cells?  I am sure for most of us in NS it would not vary by much in our areas.

That is the number of times that I have confirmed the hatch in my notes over the past couple of years.  I haven't updated it for this year yet so they will change a bit.

Thanks, it is still need quite a bit of work.  The best one for NS that I have found is Pat Donoghue's.  For those of you that have not seen this site it is worth looking around.
 Pat is a wealth of knowledge on fly fishing as you can see from his site.

That is some fine work there and a wealth of information.  I used Pats site faithfully when I forst started on the internet.  Great guy and very willing to help.  The  chart was about 3 weeks off for CB as per the change in weather and snow.  

I like beer to Paul so that works for me.
