Hendricksons were out amid a tremendous caddis hatch in the middle of the day - we could see the yellow egg sacs on the females as the dipped into the water and flew straight up toward the sky; interestingly, though, on this fishing trip there were no rises to speak of - only two rises total in our couple hours' fishing were seen, each of which produced a feisty brown that took my Elk Hair caddis. The Shad Bush is blooming now, and we are looking forward to the Shad Fly hatch  - a prolific caddis hatch with its signature green egg sac that will plaster cars driving along the roads and rivers.
