Many mayflies struggle to release themselves from their casing and as such are not able to dry their wings and get off the water. Often trout will key in on these dry flies, as they are easy pickings compared to those preparing to fly off. If you're not having much success with your old patterns, try a cripple dry fly. Color, Blue Wing Olive. Dry fly available in sizes: 16, 18, 20.

from South Platte near Deckers, CO
".....BWO hatch early in April - late afternoon on the South Platte. Despite considerable surface feeding going on, they would not take a conventional dry BWO. Put a cripple on and had a 14" brown on the third cast."

"I have been using this fly for the past few weeks on the farmington river in CT and the trout cannot resist it. It brings quantity as well as quality fish to the net/"
