Throughout the Rocky Mountains, many anglers refer to any very large mayfly–such as this one from British Columbia–as a “drake.” These big bugs offer a high-calorie meal that will draw even trophy-size trout to the surface during a hatch. Anglers also love these mayflies because the patterns that imitate them are easy to see on the water.
