In this video Simon shows how to connect a Pale Early morning Dun “paralyze” fly pattern. This pattern mimics the PMD as it emerges, trying to break the water’s surface area meniscus. This half in half out or having a hard time mayfly resembles sweet for feeding trout. Throughout heavy hatches, trout will frequently type in on simple meals like emerging mayflies shedding their nymphal shuck. Mayflies that face problems throughout their introduction such as getting stuck, or soaking their wings produce an even simpler meal. A cripple pattern like this successfully mimics both emerging mayflies and paralyzed ones by dropping the back of the fly into the water simulating an emerging PMD. The pattern can be changed in size and color for other hatches. Have a few of this specific design bound in your box for summer season.
