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.

The Grey Hackle Yellow

This fly was recently shown to me by a customer in the store who has fond memories of how many fish it has caught for him. Today it is a hard fly to find commercially tied but really isn’t too difficult to tie. I have not yet fished this pattern but have great confidence after talking with this particular customer.

The Ghost Rider Booby Fly

This fly looks alright out of the water, but amazing in the water. The marabou pulses dramatically upon every strip. This pattern is a bit of an attractor pattern but can imitate a leech swimming if the fisherman slows the retrieve way down. This fly is best fished on a sinking line so that it will sink deep but avoid snags on the bottom due to the foam eyes. I like to tie it with a stinger hook as well if I plan on it being the last fly in my rig. The bottom line is that this fly has great action and can be fished many different ways.
