    When fishing clean, clear, relatively still waters with a dry fly, the

    challenge is often in throwing a visible fly without creating too much

    commotion. For every problem there are often many solutions, and fly

    tyers have been trying to solve this small fly, high visibility

    quandary for quite a while.

    Enter Andy Burk, one of the world’s

    most creative and accomplished modern fly tyers. Burk designed his

    Silhouette Dun series with a slim and trim profile that sits neatly on

    the surface of the water with very little disturbance on landing. The

    bug’s prominent wing post allows it to be seen easily from a distance.

    Burk’s

    Silhouette Dun - Pale Morning Dun is a fantastic mayfly dun imitation

    tied to represent the Pale Morning Dun in its winged adult stage. Its

    split tails and tapered quill body make it an extremely attractive fly

    pattern while the sturdy dubbing through the thorax allow it to stand

    up to the toughest of trout.
    • This fly pattern was developed by Andy Burk, one of the world’s most successful modern fly tyers
    • The Silhouette Dun is a dry fly designed to maintain a realistic and trim profile, but remain highly visible in the water
    • This pattern is also very durable and can stand up to the most demanding trout
    • Pale Morning Dun imitation in the emerger life stage
    • Use as either an impressionistic searching fly or as a realistic imitation when matching the hatch
    • Fish on a dead drift in medium to fast water; perfect for riffles, runs, and tailouts
    • Fishing this fly towards the end of a prolific pale morning dun hatch to get the best results
    • Due to the importance of fishing this fly on a dead drift, long leaders and light tippet material are necessary
    • SIZE 18
    Leland on Umpqua In 1972 a man named Dennis Black and his fly tying skills found themselves in high demand. Mr. Black, then a professional production fly tyer, was famous in the industry for his unsurpassed skill and speed with whipping up tremendously beautiful and precisely constructed flies. It wasn't long until this young fly tying superstar realized that he ought to take his consistent approach to quality to the next level. Shortly after this realization, a small army of fly tyers had banded together to support Mr. Black's vision. With the likes of Dave Whitlock, Jack Dennis, and Andy Puyans, Mr. Black was officially in business. Dennis Black's new company Umpqua Feather Merchants quickly extended its reach and fly production capabilities with expansion into India, Sri Lanka, and Thailand, where the world's first and full blown "fly tying factories" were built. Since those early days, only the highest standard of excellence has marked Umpqua and this commitment to quality and efficiency continues to spur the company forward. Dennis Black's innovative vision for "fly production" has truly revolutionized how the fly industry operates and has ultimately made the majority of production flies better. From the first "royalty system" for rewarding the most creative professional fly tyers to streamlining production systems and offering a range of other products, Umpqua Feather Merchants just seems to "do it all." Today, Umpqua Feather Merchants is without a doubt the world's best and most prolific supplier of hand tied fly fishing flies as well as fly tying hooks and materials, and they recently got better! Umpqua's brand new, state of the art headquarters in Louisville, Colorado marks another paradigm shift in the way fly tying business is done. From its vast warehouse to its specially designed inventory management and tracking system, Umpqua is poised to continue its energetic trajectory and lead the way for the next generation of flies and fly tyers.
