Pattern Description
The Hair Wing Dun is a pattern from prolific vise of Rene Harrop. Using a hair wing and palmered hackle thorax, Harrop has managed to make a fly that is incredibly accurate as well as buoyant. I will show the Pale Morning Dun version here, but you can of course alter the colors for Blue Wing Olives and Green Drakes. This is an eaasily tied fly using commonly available materials and should be a worthy addition to your fly box.
