Ringwood Brook in May it's Dragonflies but I missed the hatch. 1/2 crawlers and a Spin Fly caught though in the rain. June is notoriously Crayfish bait month. Caught a Ringwood Brook , May is dragon fly Hatch but I missed it .Empty husks were on the rocks by the stream. 1/2 Crawlers and a Spin fly worked on Trout ,Bluegills and Fatheads in the rain though.

Tasted great .I slip floated a half crawler on a Carl Hendrix Jig ,5' below the surface in 10-12' of water .Rowing around in a 10 ' boat not far from the ramp where they were stocked I drifted and worked the oars in a spot I saw a Trout Jumping away from being chased by a Cormorant the day before .
