The articles will be brief for today and tomorrow because of the time we will be
spending at troutfest. I hope you get an opportunity to come by and visit us.
Light Cahill Dun
Once the Light Cahill nymphs emerge into duns, they don't spend but a very short
time on the surface of the water. The warmer the weather and the water, the less
time they spend on the surface before departing in flight. Their wings dry fast and
they are able to get off the water within seconds from the time they hatch.
These mayflies hatch when the trout's metabolism is in high gear and the trout don't
waste any time eating them. They usually take the Light Cahill dun imitations readily.
You should present the dun imitation in the current seams that concentrate
the surface flow near the ends of the fast water current seams. Short upstream
or slightly up and across presentations work best for this. Keep your rod high and
most of you fly line off the water to prevent drag.
The idea is to make short cast and cover a lot of water in a short time as you move
upstream. Hit the most likely seams and keep moving. You will rarely find a heavy
concentration of these mayflies. Only fish the areas we have previously described.
That will increase your odds of success.
This is our "Perfect Fly" Light Cahill Dun
