Despite it's name, the pale morning dun can hatch in the morning, the afternoon or evening. It is very common on most western waters, and trout really key in on this mayfly when it starts to move. Take several varieties of the PMD, because trout can be very selective, shunning one variety, while eagerly taking another.

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 genus Ephemerella mayfly, or pale morning dun represents the largest mayfly hatch in North America, both in sheer numbers of insects and the number of rivers that they are found in.
