Everybody of us we met situations when late in the day , on the rivers, we saw small dun flies and high activity from fish side. We changed almost all dry flies from our boxes, almost nothing happened. After years and years of fishing I arrived at 2 flies able to give me high satisfactions. I call them my special dun flies for late evenings and I have them in size from #14 down to #20.
These elementary dun flies are in 2 colors, a creamy olive and a classic dun. Tied with long tails in V shape based on translucent synthetic fibers , body made of thread, CDC wing and just a little bit of squirrel dubbing in thorax part , these flies provide a great insect water print. probably this is the reason why these models tied in this way are so efficient.
The delicate dun flies represent a great source of food for trout and grayling , the proper snack before going to bed 🙂
