The Morrish Mayday is a wonderful small mayfly pattern. The Mayday can be tied in several color variations, which can imitate specific mayflies. It sits flush to the water and has a very buggy profile. The large upright wing makes the fly very visible to the angler, while still maintaining the low body profile. The Morrish Mayday only uses 3 materials and is fairly easy to tie. A great mayfly pattern to have in your box!!
