Fly Tying with Smart Angling: The Alberta Dry
Here is a simple and very effective CDC pattern. Ciprian got inspired by last summer's visit to the Crowsnest Pass area where we experienced some of the best dry fly fishing in our lives. This is intended to imitate a pale morning dun emerger but would work for a variety of light-coloured mayflies. It has no tail and the body is not ribbed, but the fish do not seem to care at all. Keep it simple!
