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.

Pair this bad boy with some Shimazaki dry shake and the fish will eat it like it’s going out of style.
