Parachute Pale Morning Dun
The Parachute Pale Morning Dun is a dry fly pattern that imitates the Pale Morning Dun mayfly, a common insect found in rivers and streams throughout North America.
This pattern is designed to sit high on the surface of the water, making it easy to see for both the angler and the fish.
The fly features a parachute-style hackle, which is wrapped around a post of white or light-colored yarn. This gives the fly a high-floating profile and makes it more visible to fish.
The body of the fly is typically made from pale yellow or cream-colored dubbing, and the wings are made from a light dun or cream-colored hackle.
The Parachute Pale Morning Dun is particularly effective when fished during a hatch, but it can also be used as an attractor pattern to entice fish to the surface.
It can be fished using a variety of techniques, including dead drifting, skittering, and twitching, depending on the behavior of the fish and the conditions on the water.
Overall, the Parachute Pale Morning Dun is a versatile and effective dry fly pattern that should be in every fly fisherman’s arsenal, especially during the summer months when mayflies are abundant.
Usually available in the following hook sizes: 10 | 12 | 14 | 16 | 18
