Once on to the surface of the river, green drakes become duns. Duns are sexually immature mayflies that lack mouth parts to eat. Their main goal is to dry their wings and get off the surface of the water as quickly as possible so that they can molt into a sexually mature mayfly and find a mate. This Green Drake pattern imitates a freshly hatched dun that is sitting low in the surface film either emerging or stuck in it’s nymphal shuck. Trout will often favor a easier meal like this than Green Drakes ready to take flight.

Green drake mayflies undergo a molting process. This is the second phase of the adult stage. Green Drake spinners are in the sexually mature phase of the adult stage. Once their wings are dry, green drakes fly to streamside bushes and mate. Eventually, they will return to the river, lay their eggs, and die. They will fall flat on the water’s surface with their wings splayed out. This is what is known as a spinner fall.

  • Imitates Green Drake duns.
