Sparkle Dun Fly Tying Video Instructions

The Sparkle Dun is a great dry fly emerger developed by Craig Mathews of Blue Ribbon Flies.  The Z-lon for the tail imitates the emerging insect’s shuck.  This is a vulnerable stage for any insect and hungry trout know that!  The Sparkle Dun in this video has been tied in a Blue Winged Olive color, but the Sparkle Dun can also be tied in PMD, Trico, Drake and Callibaetis colors.
