Blue Dun

The Blue Dun is another classic trout dry fly patterns that originated to imitate the early mayfly hatches. It was undoubtedly first tied as a wet fly and later adapted as a dry fly pattern. Eventually the dry version became more popular. Is still very effective as a Baetis or Callibaetis mayfly pattern, even when fish are sophisticated.
