How to fish Ephemera Danica Nymph Patterns
There are four major groups of mayfly nymphs, each with its specific shape, movement, and behavior: swimmers, clingers, burrowers, and crawlers. Each of these groups is asking for its specific gradation in pattern and presentation of the fly. Ephemera Danica mayfly nymph belongs to a borrowers group.
Burrowers live in calm, slow waters and have long bodies and short, but very strong legs with large claws which enable them to dig protective burrows in the gravel of the river bottom. They have pale, yellowish bodies and are mostly nocturnal. They breathe through gills located on the upper side of their backs. Their tails and abdomen area are fringed and feathery. Fish can find burrowers when they come out of their hiding – at night to eat or in times of a hatch, which also happens when it’s dark – starting in late evenings. To fish burrowers, drifting along the bottom would be your best bet. Due to their size – they are a tasty meal for the trout that rarely gets passed. In size, they range from #4 to #10, most common being #8 and #10.
