Upside Down Comparadun - Wonder if this fly will float correctly

While fishing the Lower Henry's Fork this summer, we found the sparkle dun comparadun pattern for the Flav's worked the best. It occurred to me that the comparadun pattern might work even better if tied upside down? Some of the water was quite flat and the browns weren't always fooled by the standard pattern.
Prototype Tied:

Not a True Field Test, but Seems to Float OK:


  1. Hey Byron-
    I was thinking of doing the same thing with an Elk Hair Caddis. You field test it yet?

  2. I have been tying a similar USD pattern on Kahle hooks for about 10 years now. They will float just fine. And they do work for me.
