It's May. This month is dominated by 2 hatches:

  • Mayflies - usually start in mid-May (in the South) and towards the end of May in the North of the UK, and will last for around 4 weeks. Here in North Yorkshire, we don't usually see a mayfly until the last week in May.
  • Olives (in all their various guises). A bit of a generic term for the up-winged flies - unless you are really clued up on your entomology. The 2 main Olive hatches in May are the Large Dark Olive and Medium Olive.

You will find out much more about both the Mayfly and all the other flies which hatch in May in our 'Hatch Chat' series of emails, which will be with you throughout this month.

May is also when the Caddis/Sedge will start to hatch in any sort of number - but more about those in the June Selection.

To tie in with our Fly Anglers Almanac (which is still available to buy, click here), we are making available to you, each month, a selection of the flies - allowing you to 'match the hatch'.

This May Selection contains 19 flies:

  • CdC Mayfly Dun - 1 x Size 14 & 1 x Size 16
  • Driffield Dun - 2 x Size 16
  • Green Drake Wulff - 2 x Size 16
  • Loopwing Mayfly - 1 x Size 10 & 1 x Size 12
  • Mayfly Spinner - 1 x Size 10 & 1 x Size 12
  • Olive Grunter - 1 x Size 12
  • Split-Wing Olive - 2 x Size 14 & 2 x Size 18
  • Stillborn Mayfly - 1 x Size 10 & 1 x Size 12
  • White Wulff - 2 x Size 16

As you may be aware we used to provide a subscription service, called The River Box, which has now been discontinued due to the costs of the software to run it! We have decided to make a selection of flies from the book available each month - no need to signup for a subscription, just buy them as and when you want them.

    These flies are only available as a selection, just click on "add to cart", you can then adjust the quantities in your cart.
