The Light Hendrickson fly is a well-known dry fly pattern used in fly fishing. This fly is designed to mimic the Ephemerella subvaria, often referred to as the Light Hendrickson mayfly. It is particularly effective during mayfly hatches in the spring.

The body of the Light Hendrickson fly is slender and typically tied with pink or light tan dubbing to replicate the color of the natural mayfly. Its tail is generally made from light-colored hackle fibers, often in a cream or tan shade, and is split to represent the two tails of the mayfly.

The wings are usually made from a light, semi-transparent material like duck quill or synthetic fibers and are tied upright and divided, mimicking the delicate wings of the mayfly.

The hackle on the Light Hendrickson is usually light ginger or grizzly and is wound around the hook at the front of the fly, aiding in floatation and imitating the legs of the mayfly.

Overall, the Light Hendrickson is an effective and versatile fly pattern, especially productive during Light Hendrickson mayfly hatches, but also useful as a general searching pattern throughout the trout season.
