Improved Sparkle Dun

I tried this a long time before. Thought I was the only one doing this. Then, I found a youtube video by Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies and find that he is doing it. They named it the "Improved Sparkle Dun". I like it because it sort of highlights the wing and adds sheen to it.

This one is supposed to be a baetis. My thread color was too light. This one is a size 16.


  1. Improved version is tied on a curved emerger hook with a thin thread abdomen, both of which are why I prefer this to original.

  2. I haven't tried using this improvised flyers but this looks nice though. I'm gonna need this for extra purposes. Fishing lewis river.

  3. I really like that fly, I'll try tying a few tonight.
