WATCH VIDEO and Tackle Up for the 2016 Mayfly Season
 
'Duffers' Fortnight' is upon us - that magical period when the mayfly hatch reaches its crescendo and, supposedly, anyone can catch!

The truth of the matter is not quite what folklore would have us believe. Mayfly hatches have tended to be somewhat unpredictable - both in number and timing - in recent years and if you want to make the most of what is still a marvellous time to be on the rivers you need to be on top of your game.

Thankfully Jonathan Tomlinson and Chris Hayward are always on top of their game and offer some brilliant tactical advice on making the most of the mayfly hatch in a new Sportfish video.

The Sportfish team have also selected the top kit to help ensure that, 'duffer' or not, you are properly prepared for the prime month ahead.
