Got to experience my first hatch of these flies on a stream where they aren't listed as having them present. Didn't last too long. Took place at 9:30 am and lasted about 30 minutes. Fish didn't rise to them during the hatch but I couldn't keep them off of a #18 BWO later in the day.
I love fly fishing and fly tying more than a fat kid likes cake...

Welcome back to the forum, Mark!

Assuming your comment that this hatch isn't listed is based on angling sources and not scientific lit, your observations may point out the reason. It's my experience that there are often dozens of mayfly species on any given river that go unreported on angler "Hatch Charts", simply because they never seem to offer obvious angling opportunities. From time to time, though...:)
