The Comparadun, or the Hairwing, saw the light in 1965 according to Doug Swisher. A fly that pretty much is tied the same way today 50 years later. Although we usually tie the fly with improved materials now, I still like tying a couple of the originals to accompany those with fibettes, biots and artificial materials.
It’s really no point tying it if you’re not nostalgic. The deer hairs in the tail are weak, and will last only one or two takes before it needs to be replaced. But being fond of catching with the original patterns, I always carry a couple of those Hairwings with me in the box.
