Features of the Pale Morning Dun, Comparadun, Pale Yellow
The PMD Comparadun provides a great mix of lifelike silhouette, visibility, and buoyancy.
Many fly fishing guides go straight to comparaduns when a PMD hatch brings up actively rising trout.
This fly pattern floats in all but the fastest and roughest stream currents and trout seem to prefer this fly to many of the traditional hackled patterns.
Fly fishers around the world should consider this a staple fly where PMD or similar mayflies are present.
