PHEASANT TAIL MAYFLY CRIPPLE
Around Livingston, three Paradise Valley spring creeks, technical waters of Yellowstone Park, and Yellowstone River, all host various kinds of mayflies. Everyone has his/her own favorite time and species (my favorite is baetis hatches in spring and fall). For those favorite mayflies of ours (and of trout), there are tons of patterns ever invented and tested. Some make to the bins of local fly-shops and others remain in personal boxes, if not in the garbage bag.
