Like a lot of other fly anglers, there are very few hatches that I will specifically target when it comes to brook trout. As a matter of fact, to be exact, there is only one.
In Maine "The Hatch" is refered to as the Green Drake hatch and has been for probably as long as anyone can remember. But with more people educated today in bug taxonimy it is now refered to more and more by what it actually is.
So then, what is it, actually?
