Split Case PMD

$2.50

Joe Mitchell’s Split Case Pale Morning Dun (PMD) is our favorite nymph for imitating emerging Pale Morning Duns. The Split Case PMD has a sparse, segmented body leading up to its hotspot wing case. The “hotspot” wing case acts like a trigger to fool some of the most selective trout around.  Next time trout are focused on PMD nymphs, tie one on and you will quickly see why it has become our go-to pattern for selective tailwater trout chowing down on PMD nymphs.

Fishing Strategies:

The best time to fish a Split Case PMD is June and July as trout are keying on PMD’s.  We typically carry both standard and tungsten versions in sizes 16-18.  You can fish this pattern as both as an attractor and dropper in a tandem nymphing setup.  Don’t hesitate to use the Tungsten Split Case PMD in a dry-dropper rig as the additional weight, makes all the difference in getting the little mayfly down in the water column.  If you like this pattern, do not forget to check out our Spit Case BWO nymph too.
