Sparkle Dun - Dry Fly
The Sparkle Dun is based on the Compara 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.
