Hendrickson Vs. Kahle Worm – Two Heavyweight flies, One Winner!

There was some great fishing to be had along the banks of the Farmington River this spring, the weather made some of the Hendrickson dry fly fishing very challenging, but with a very solid Plan “B” the results were a whole lot of fun and some terrific scenery.  Though I love fishing classic dry flies for the first major insect event on the Farmington, my experience has taught me through frustration, that often during the early days of the Hedrickson Hatch fish can tend to let many naturals just drift by,  seemingly ignored.  Good anglers always remember that  the spring  water temps can still be a little chilly, making fish at times lethargic (especially in the morning hours if overnight temperatures are close to freezing).    Many times I myself have been the angler standing there during a good hatch of Hendricksons with no fish rising and just a bunch of Duns floating on by.  You can establish a good “Plan B”  by showing the fish a large meal they cannot pass up, and for me JW’s own Kahle Worm definitely was the logical choice.  This fly pulled its weight against the classic Hendrickson dry fly choices.  The Kahle Worm has certainly reared it head as a must have Fly in my Box, producing many quality fish and tons of action for the camera!  After the show, drop us an email letting us know who you think, won this Epic Battle!  As always, many thanks to all the good friends I have on the Farmington River that I get to share these moments with.  “Thanks for tolerating my camera waving around in your face!”  We’re just keeping it real here at www.JWFlyfishing.com  ”  Good luck on the river!

    1. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic
      nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in
      exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or
      vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the
      same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from
      each other. If you are interested feel free to
      shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
      Superb blog by the way!

    2. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored at work so I decided to check out youjr blog on my iphone during lunch break.
      I enjoy the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I
      get home. I’m shocked aat how fast your blog loaded on my phone ..

      I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, superb site!

    3. I would definately be interested in trying any and all of these options! I am not quite sure what a Divorce firm in Tampa FL has in common with a trout bum, but I would love to hear it!! Although I can see how it would be possible for both to be directly related! You can find me on Facebook@JWFlyfishing.com and we could chat more about it. If your not on Facebook let me know and I will send you an email. Thanks for checking out JWFlyfishing.com


    4. Glad you liked the site, I do apologize for the lack of current content but my kids are growing fast and furious and my obligations at home have taken priority over my leisure time and fishing etc. I noticed that JWFlyfishing.com was lightning fast after a wordpress cellphone optimization plugin that I installed to make the site more accessible for cellphone users. It changes the format of the site for cellphone users, however I still love the look and feel of the site on my home PC. Check out the Flickr link and JWFlyfishing on youtube as well for some cool stuff. Last but not least Check us out on Facebook @ JWFlyfishing.com as well where we can chat and Share stories pics and vids. Thanks for leaving a comment as well! Please let me know what you think of the site on your PC. I really need some followers to be a little more engaged so I can make JWFlyfishing POP:) in a way that benefit us all.
      Hope to catch up with you soon,


    5. Hey there! I’ve been reading your blog for a long time now
      and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from
      Houston Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!
