Click here for Click for May hatch chart or click for June hatch chart..

Note: Hatch charts are only guidelines for hatches. Hatches will vary year upon year based upon the actual weather and even temperature and conditions daily. These hatch charts are here to help a fly fisherman prepare for what should potentially be hatching at their waters on a monthly basis. These hatch charts are prepared from resources including local knowledge, Internet resources and website for rivers throughout the UK, fly fishing magazines and traditional books.
