A classic mayfly imitation, super buoyant and tied to exacting standards. This fly is tied with a long Olive hackle, olive ribbed body and the signature tail. One of the most effective (non-white) Mayfly imitations when spinners are on the water. This fly can also be fished when wet, so don't be too quick to retrieve it when it is sinking!
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.
This fly is available in either size 10 or 12.
