Polish Quills Detached Body Mayfly
Detached Body Mayflies
A classic detached body Mayfly imitation - brought to you by those fly tying masters at Polish Quills (thanks Wojtek) - These flies are absolutely beautiful. They really are too nice to cast. Available in two colours Yellow & Grey. Fish these when the spinners are out.
Once the dun has moulted into a spinner and mated, it returns to the river to lay its eggs during the late afternoon. This is some of the most eagerly anticipated fly fishing of the year!
Target slow, deep and silty water; this is where the female will lay her eggs.
Top Tip: If you see spinners dancing above you, pay very close attention to the water for softly rising fish, and look for dead spinners caught in small pockets of dead water behind rocks or debris. If you find any, pick them up so you can get a good idea on their size and colour and then select an appropriate pattern.
