CDC Little Sulphur Dun

The CDC Little Sulphur Dun



The "Ephemerella Dorethea Dorethea" hatch, or as we know it, the Little Sulphur hatch here in the Northeast is a hatch one must be able to cover on most waters. Aside from the Caddis hatches, it is the longest running mayfly show in town, and a remembered fly throughout most of the season. The Dorothea is the smallest of the Sulphurs most will encounter, and the predictable hatch timing makes this hatch a local favorite.
