Little did I know that fly fishing would be my rock when my fiancé broke up with me for the last time in December. He had told me on multiple occasions that I needed to go out and do more things by myself as I was too dependent on him for my happiness (not sure that was entirely accurate). This may have been the reason that I jumped 100% into fly fishing as Nati, the Goldendoodle and I could do it by ourselves. Leaving him to sit on the couch being introverted.

The Sparkle Dun
The Sparkle Dun dry fly is basically a Comparadun with a polypropelene tail to imitate a trailing shuck of an emerging mayfly. It can be tied in a variety of colors to mimic many different mayflies. From larger Green Drakes and March Browns down to the classic BWO’s and PMD’s. The Sparkle Dun is a great fly to imitate an emerging or a crippled mayfly. The deer hair tied up will help this sit right in the film as an emerging bug would. The emerger yarn resembles a shuck as this bug gets ready to spread its wings. Pair this bad boy with some Shimazaki dry shake and the fish will eat it like it’s going out of style.
