Hendrickson Sparkle Dun #12

The Maple Syrup is a well known and well deserved replica of a Hexagenia mayfly nymph that is known to most fly fishers. This should be the first fly you tie on if you find yourself on a body of water with silt or mud on the bottom. This fly used to be somewhat of a secret amongst Maine Guide’s in the North Maine Woods back in the day. At lunch time around camp the guide’s would hide their fly rods so that know one would know that they were using the secret fly, The Maple Syrup. Sometimes we overcomplicate our fly patterns, this fly is a perfect example of less is more.

In the early season trout awaken from their winter slumber to eagerly seek these emerging Hendrickson mayflies, making this one of the first and most abundant mayfly hatches each spring in New England! The emerger life cycle represented by the Hendrickson Sparkle Dun can result in some of the greatest Spring action on the fly, while being frequently disregarded and underfished. Tied in size 12.
