    Default The "B Dun" PMD

    This is a size 18 PMD I have named the "B Dun". It was inspired by the "Improved F Fly" shown by Hans Weilenmann here.

    There you go, Byron - it has a name.

    Now for the $1M question - what stops it from flipping on its side every time it lands? Have you tried?

    Cheers,

    The tails are splayed, which I think will provide stability. The underneath fold of CDC should also provide stability as it will ride quite low in the water.
    Will photo it from above.

    You think it will not float "upright"?
    I gave it the "bowl of water test" which is not like testing in the stream, but will let you know...............

    Wasn't it always "The $64,000 question"? Inflation that high?

    I think you are absolutely correct, Byron, on the inflation being too high

    And the upright floatation?

    I notice in Davie McPhail's version of the F-Fly which he calls the F-Fly CDC Snowshoe Dun fly, he has tail fibers on his fly. Your pattern, and the original F-Fly, are "without tails". Is it not a dun? More of a caddis pattern?
