Defenseless PMD
  • Code: D-DEFP

Size 14 (46 Available)
Size 16 (18 Available)

There's a moment during the life cycle of every aquatic insect when they are caught between two worlds: the subsurface and the surface. At no time are they as vulnerable as when they are shedding their casing and emerging as an adult. The Defenseless PMD captures that very moment as the midge struggles to free itself from its shuck. Tied on a swimming nymph hook, the Defenseless PMD rides up in the water, legs pulling forward wings emerging, while its trailing CDC shuck and abdomen lie flat on the water's surface, making it a very tempting target for foraging trout. Fish the Defenseless PMD on your favorite stream any time pale morning duns are actively coming off the surface.

The Maccaffertium vicarium mayfly begins hatching when the water temperature hits about 42 degrees Fahrenheit, which is usually March! The hatch is usually in the afternoon, and a spinner fall occurs later on that day. The March Brown fly pattern imitates this adult mayfly very well. These are generally big mayflies, which cause trout to feed with "reckless abandon", with big splashes being the typical bite.
