Sparkle Dun - Dry Fly

The Sparkle Dun is based on the Compara dun.

Sparkle Dun

The Sparkle Dun is a variation of the original Compara Dun. No-hackle flies are designed for fishing smoother glides and other types of water where trout are suspicious of denser, hackled patterns. The Sparkle Dun is aimed to imitate a small mayfly emerging from its nymphal suck and the clear sparkling tail does this ewell. The Sparkle Dun is made to float bny using deer hair flared aound the top of the hook in a semi-circle, this also ensures better body contact without creating a hackle heel where the hackle lifts the fly off of the water reducing the Sparkle Dun's body footprint.

Fly Tying Difficulty: 3

For the more adventurous among you we have provided tying specifications for the Sparkle Dun. Remember at The Essential Fly we sell the Sparkle Dun at incredible prices with a top quality fly and service to back it up. It is certainly worth tying the Sparkle Dun yourself to understand the pleasure of catching a fish with your own tied fly, however at the price we sell flies it is only worth tying one or two Sparkle Dun as your can spend more time fishing instead of tying flies - buy volume online with us.
