Video: How to Tie the PMD Trigger Point Usual

In this week’s great tying video from Tim Flagler of Tightline Productions, he walks you through the steps required to make a simple mayfly pattern that’s a variation on both Fran Betters’s Usual and Al Cauci’s Comparadun. The result is a mayfly imitation with a great profile that floats well and is stable on the water. The synthetic tail and wings help keep the pattern upright on the surface. Best of all, the tying process is straighforward and fast. You can tie these in any color to match your local mayflies throughout the season.
