Over the next couple of weeks, the Hendricksons should be hatching and with luck the trout will be feasting on them. Here in New Jersey, they should begin to hatch any day now, while in the Poconos and in the Catskills, they should show in a week or two or three, depending on where you fish. After the brutal winter we had, there are all kinds of predictions on when the hatch will occur. The only way to know is to get your ass out on the water as much as possible, because if you aren't there, you aren't going to catch anything on them. If course, if you are there, you should have been there yesterday........
Rather than reinvent the blog post, here's a link to a nice write up that OrvisNews posted this week with a great video by Tim Flagler of the Hendrickson nymphs in their natural environment, followed by two tying videos of some guy tying Hendrickson dry flies - a Catskill Hendrickson and a Hendrickson Comparadun.
