Yellow Quill - Dun
Duns of the albertae species don’t stay on the surface very long. The trout will
eat them for certain but they probably eat more of the duns when they are
shedding their nymphal shucks than they do the duns on the surface of the
water. Of course, the fishing satisfaction and action is always better if you are
fishing a dry fly, so we always try it.
We stick with the up and slightly up and across presentations of the dry dun
imitation. Fish it in the current seams coming down the side of pockets behind
boulders and to the sides of pockets along the banks. The duns may not surface
until they are well below the pockets, so don't fail to fish the dry fly downstream of
the pockets. Just follow the bubbles.
