Looking for a deadly burrowing mayfly (green drake, hexagenia, dark green drake, etc.) pattern? Hise's Burrowing Mayfly Nymph is a nymph pattern which was designed to imitate a multitude of burrowing mayflies found throughout the country; trout, steelhead, smallmouth bass, they all love it. It is most effective when high stick or indicator nymphed under a floating line but also works quite well when "crawled" along the river bottom near silty areas. Designed and tied by Dave Hise.
