LAKE FLY GUIDE
 
JUNE

Much the same flies hatch in June as in May, except that the mayfly dies off around the middle of the month and sedges begin to hatch. The most important sedges are the big red sedges, including the peters and murroughs and the various types of silverhorns. In the latter half of the month, fish may not touch fly at all during the day, being "on the fry" - that is, eating the perch fry which are then at their most vulnerable. Fishing is best in the evening if sedges are about.
