Pale Evening Dun
The Pale Evening Dun (Ephemera invaria), also known as the Sulphur Dun or Light Cahill, is a common mayfly species that hatches in the late afternoon to early evening. It’s a significant insect for fly fishing, as trout and other fish species eagerly feed on them during their emergence.
The fly pattern is designed to imitate the Pale Evening Dun and the main goal is to mimic the appearance and behavior of the natural insect as closely as possible.
When fishing the Pale Evening Dun fly pattern, try to imitate the natural behavior of the mayfly. Cast it upstream and let it float downstream naturally, mimicking the emergence of the insects from the water’s surface.
Pay attention to the timing of the hatch, as fish tend to be most active and responsive during the actual emergence of the mayflies.
Remember that the colors and sizes may vary depending on the specific location and time of year, so it’s always a good idea to check with local anglers or fishing guides for the most accurate recommendations.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14 | 16 | 18 | 20
