Tan Searching Mayfly

A Comparadun Style Searching Mayfly. Here’s another pattern I’m planning to try. It is tied comparadun style with a deer hair wing, but I added a grizzly variant hackle. Also added a bit of silver tinsel to the body.


Hook: Your Choice
Tail: Mallard Fibers
Body: Tan Superfine Dubbing
Rib: Silver Tinsel
Thorax: Tan Superfine Dubbing
Wing: Deer Hair, Comparadun Style
Hackle: Your Choice
Thread: Tan 8/0 or Your Choice

I also plan to try a few of these on my Tionesta > Tioga > Sinnemahoning Trip this weekend. I’ll report back on the success or lack of. ~Drifter07
