This week’s Throw Back Thursday Fly is the Ray Bergman Pale Evening Dun.
The Pale Evening Dun is a Ray Bergman dry fly listed in his book entitled Trout (1940 – fourth printing) on page 123, Plate No. 6.
Bergman was well known for his wet flies, but his book also lists dry flies, streamers, nymphs, steel head and land locked salmon flies.
If you are a regular at RiverKeeper Flies, you recall Bergman’s book includes colored plates to illustrate the dry and wet flies with a description of each fly in the back. It was the first book to provide color fly illustrations.
