Living in Michigan's U.P. we long for these seemingly endless summer nights all winter long. With that being said it's hard to believe that we are already on the downward spiral into fall as the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer.
Around this time every year, the dry fly enthusiast is given one more shot at some amazing summertime mayfly action. What do I speak of you may ask? I speak of the Ephron, the white mayfly. Around the middle of August every year like clockwork, the snow storm in August as I refer to it starts its ritual. Around 8:30 or so in the evening you start to see this mayfly coming off the banks. One, then two, then hundreds...turning into a blanket hatch and the fishing turns into a feeding frenzy!
This is going on as I am typing this quick report up and if you have never experienced this hatch it is something to behold!
