Fishing Mayfly Dun Patterns

The majority of mayfly species molt in the spring and early summer, while others do it at different times of the year. You could have sporadic hatches of certain species even in the late fall and early spring. These sporadic times could be even more interesting and productive for trout (and for a fisherman). During early spring and the fall, mayflies hatch in the warm hours of the day – usually midday. In the summertime, this event moves more towards the morning and late afternoon or early evenings. Usually, the warmer the weather, the shorter the hatch is – an hour or two. With cooler weather, this can last a couple of hours. As mayfly duns float on the surface like little sailboats, this behavior dictates the method of presentation of the fly that is imitating it. When presenting a dun imitation to the trout, it has to be drag-free and from upstream, not giving a fish much opportunity to see the line or leader. This can be done by cross-current reach cast. This way your fly will drift towards the trout before the line and the leader arrive.

  1. Corey

    I purchased a few packages of these tube bodies in different sizes and colors and have recently been playing with them. They make tying realistic looking extended dry fly bodies a breeze. Nice selection of colors and sizes, and easy to use.

  2. PAUL HAMILTON (verified owner)

    Started using these bodies last year for Green Drake and Hexagenia patterns easy to work with and very realistic I use a marker to color them to suit look I want and sometimes use a Partridge K10 Yorkshire Fly Hook (extended body) the body is hollow so it just slides over the extension, which helps maintain the profile and makes the fly more durable.

  3. Robert Burney (verified owner)

    Excellent product, natural and easy to use. Extremely fast service from Canada to U.S.

  4. Gordon Outhier

    Talk about fantastic fish foolers! Seems they never wise up. Caught the same rainbow three times.

  5. pumkin (verified owner)

    I ordered my pale yellow body for matching the hatch real tying.
    There is two version exist in Frostyfly shop – black tailed & yellow(orange) version.
    In the Eastern country, the latter is more suitable for matching the hatch tying and Fisher can get more accurate bites from sensitive Trout.
    Please make sure to check this out.
    When selling in the shop, be sure to ask all the Fisher which version to ship in.
    Anyway, I’m really satisfy with this product. It is the best product for real tying. highly recommend 👍👍👍

  6. Stephen Purvis (verified owner)
