Olive Dun - Dry Fly

Olive Dun

The term 'dun' is the fisherman's name for the first winged state of the ephemerid's life. The actual correct term is sub-imago. The artificial Olive Dun is a pattern that can imitate many of the natural olives. There are many alternative dressings for this fly.

Olive Dun - Fly Tying Dressing

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Olive Dun. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Olive Dun at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Olive Dun yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Olive Dun as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.
