Something FLAV-Ish in a nymph for “between the lakes”:

LITTLE GREEN DRAKE — (DRUNELLA FLAVILINEA)

HOOK SIZES 14, 16

Flavs are a big deal on the Henry’s Fork, but they are often overshadowed in the mind of anglers on the Madison by PMDs. This is a big mistake. Their imitations are necessary not only for rising fish, but also make superb searching patterns.

OUR RIVERS AND WHEN TO FLY FISH WITH LITTLE GREEN DRAKES

Madison River          July 10 – August 10

Firehole River           June 1 – June 25
Yellowstone River    July 20 – August 10
