I have made no attempt to hide the fact that I love the Comparadun pattern. I tie it several ways, and this is a great variation of the pattern combining CdC and deer hair in the wing. Tying it this way produces a fly that is robust and durable. Somehow it also creates a visually nicer wing. I do not know if the fish cares, but the fly works darn well on a mayfly hatch.
This version is a universal pattern for any mayfly hatch.
When tying the fly, take care of the proportions. When you’re combining both hair and CdC you’re running the risk of creating a bug that’s to chubby to fish well. Use 50 percent of the deer hair compared to what you normally do.
