Mayfly for trout – easy to tie and very effective

This fly is one of my favorite Mayfly for fishing in cold and fast flowing rivers.

This Mayfly is working great in May and June  on Sava river from Slovenia.

I like to make the body with CDC because the transparency effect of this material is unique.

Here is the step by step:

Materials that I used:

Hook: Maruto Dohitomi D04 #12

Body Thread: Micro Floss – yellow

Body: Ultra Selected CDC -tan ( beige gold )

Ribbing: Pure Silk – brown

Tail: 4-5 pheasant tail barbs – natural brown

Wings: Lemon Wood Duck genuine

Hackle: Whiting –Herbert Miner saddle – chocolate dun color
