Blue Raider is wise to point out that dry flies do get swept under the film; particularly on a windy or blustery day.... Mayflies often get mashed back into the water and wet their wings and become the sought after "cripple" that is easy prey.

My prefered mayfly is a parachute with a sparse trailing shuck made of tri-lobal antron, SLF or Zelon..... they look more vulnerable than a full floating dun. I also like a trailing shuck on a CDC fly.
