When trout feed on spent spinners they do it with comfort. These dead mayflies will not fly away or move. The rise is slow and easy going, often in an head-and-tail style. Many anglers find it diffucult as the fish turns selective during times when hundreds of Spent Spinner’s lies across the surface. To succed and maybe hook the trout of your life, you will need to observe how the fish moves, were it feeds and make a good presentation. But as important is that you use a good imitation. The fish has alot of time to observe the fly and will not take a poor imitation.
Just as with the midge pupae, the adult midge is of great importance to both fish and fly fisher. Especially so early and late in the season when a large hatch can bring good sized fish to the surface. J:son's imitation of an adult midge also works great to imitate a large number of other small insects that fish feed on, including micro caddis. Often fish will turn selective during a midge hatch and it's important to always keep imitations of both the pupae and the adult midge in your fly box. Remember to approach a fish with ease that is feeding on adult midges. Observe and be patient.
Many terrestrials are often found close to the water. Among these you will find craneflies, ants, bumblebees, wasps and bees. All of these will occasionally end up on the surface of the water and become the target for many fish species, such as grayling, char, rainbow trout and brown trout. Most terrestrials that ends up on the water do so by misstake. A strong wind, a heavy rain or cold temperatures will limit there abillities to move or fly.
