There are many aquatic living insects and small animals that fish will feed on. Some of the most important once are scuds. These small crustaceans make out a large quantity of the biomass in many waters and many fish species will continue to feed on them all their life. Scuds are found in both still water and slow moving parts of streams and rivers all around the world. When they swim, they will form there body into a something that almost looks like a circle by bending it so that the tail reaches there head, and then quickly pushing it back into a straight position. When they do so, it almost looks like they are jumping. As you fish your imitation, it is important to imitate this way of swimming by making a short, quick pull in the line and then letting the fly fall slowly down again before the next short pull.

Mayfly Dun 1 Olive Grey

The stage of the new hatched adult mayfly is called Dun. Depending on surronding circumstances such as temperature, wind and weather, the time it takes before the Dun are able to fly away from the surface will vary. These new hatched mayflies are often an easy target for the fish. In this stage a mayfly is vulnerable and many will end up in Mr. Browntrout’s stomach. When the hatching is frequent, many fish species might become selective and only feed on Dun’s. As a fly fisherman you will need to use imitations of the real insect. The fly needs to have the right shape, size, proportions, colours and not least, leave the right prints on the surface of the water.
