Pale Morning Dun

Pale Morning Dun

This Pale Morning Dun pattern is an all season pattern starting in late spring to late fall. This Pale Morning Dun pattern imitates predominantly the Ephemerella excrucians a significant pattern. This hatch is significant due to the fact that it occurs for an extended period of time in various volumes in the West, but in the East hatches are shorter lived. Fish this pattern in most aquatic systems, but most frequently look for weedy, faster waters in the West and slower to medium runs in the East.   Fish this Pale Morning dun, in the East late afternoon early evening and late morning to early evening in the West. The hatch will typically occur in slower, longer more sedate flows. Due to the size of the mayflies, they will struggle in the water surface and with warmer weather will spend less time in the surface tension.

When fishing any dry fly pattern, matching the color and the size to the hatch are critical, with presentation being the finishing touch to this trinity. Often overlooked is the casting of shadow from your leader, which may lead to spooked fish. We suggest selecting a high float leader. Additional waterproofing can be given to your fly delaying it becoming waterlogged, by applying a flotant product such as Gink ®.
