The largest mayfly in Scandinavia are the Ephemera Danica and it’s stillwater relative, the E. vulgata. They are the same size, and the Vulgata tend to be a little darker than the Danica. They hatch more or less at the same time, and both of course offer excellent fishing.
The Danish fly tyer and fly fisherman Per Tofting has for several years fished with big may flies in his local streams for brown-trout, but in recent years he has fooled countless large Seatrouts to take his beautiful imitations. Imagine a 10 lbs silvershining sea trout sipping may flies on the surface, and then trick it on light gear. We fully understand Per’s fascination and enthusiasm for this kind of trophy fishing.
