Deschutes River Green Drake Hatch

Every year, on the tail end of the salmon fly hatch, the green drake mayflies start popping.  The hatch usually lasts for only a few days... Of you hit it right, it will be a day of dry fly fishing you'll never forget.  If you're headed out to the river in the next couple of weeks, I'd have a few of these bugs in your fly box.  You can't miss the hatch when it happens.  Just look for the massive mayflies that look like black hawk helicopters.
