    That, was quite an amazing sight. About the closest I’ve come to something similar, is being in a hatch of mayflies, specifically, the Hexagania Limbata, or what flyfishers call “The Hex.” I’ve been in some amazing hatches of this mayfly, right around dusk in mid to late June, and in some just as amazing spinner falls (a spinner fall occurs when Hex mate above a stream, and then die and fall on the water, most often in large numbers). Another amazing hatch of mayflies to see in huge numbers, is the Ephoron mayfly, often referred to as “The White Fly.” These typically hatch late August or early September, right around dusk. If the hatch is large, and they typically are, it’s almost as if it is snowing out. Amazing sights!
