Today we are checking out The Duck's Dunn 'Large Dark Olive' Fly by Steve Cullen. This is Steve's take on tying the Duck Dunn which was first developed by Charles Jardine. This is a great all-season pattern, however it's particularly effective when Trout are feeding on Large Dark Olives and March Browns. This pattern features the natural floatability of the CDC Feather, so there's very little need to use any floatant with this fly. Get a few of these tied on different size hooks and in different coloured variants for this season, they definitely produce great results!
All of the materials needed to tie this fly are available from Glasgow Angling Centre as listed below, but as always, if you need any help finding materials or substitutes then we'll be happy to help. Time to tie a Duck's Dunn 'Large Dark Olive, with the guidance of Steve Cullen.
