    Default CDC and Comparadun...

    Wet and rainy out so I tied up a few sample flies to test the waters with. Here is a size 16 CDC and Comparadun. Kind of funny as I have been tying a lot of 20-22's and the size 16 hook seems gigantic. My size 10's look like snagging hooks.

    And a second with a different color CDC.

    Those are nice flies. They are very buggy looking. I believe comparadun hackle is tied in with the natural deer hair tips forward and then stood straight up and flared out rather than slanting back. Craig Matthews aptly demonstrates the procedure on his sparkle dun you tube video. Good luck with those flies.

    Thanks, pretty much what I was aiming for just using what was on hand currently.

    Did you call it a comparadun because that is the kind of hair you used? Some deer hair is labeled comparadun because it is suitable for that style of fly, but very usable for other patterns, like the ones you tied. Great pattern!
