Burnt Wing Dark Hendrickson
The Burnt Wing Dark Hendrickson is a type of fly that is commonly used in fly fishing. It is a variation of the classic “Dark Hendrickson” fly pattern and is designed to imitate the nymphal and emerger stages of the Hendrickson mayfly.
The Burnt Wing Dark Hendrickson features a dark brown or reddish-brown body made of dubbing or thread, along with a pair of burnt orange or brown wings made of turkey or goose quill. The fly also typically includes a tail made of brown hackle fibers and a ribbing made of copper wire or tinsel.
This fly is often fished in streams and rivers during the spring and early summer, when Hendrickson mayflies are hatching. It is typically fished as a nymph or emerger pattern and can be effective for a variety of game fish species, including trout and smallmouth bass.
As with any fly pattern, the Burnt Wing Dark Hendrickson can be tied in a variety of sizes to match the size and color of the natural insects in the water. It is a popular pattern among fly anglers and can be a great addition to any fly box.
