Today is a great day for tying flies. A balmy 8 degrees outside, its nice to see the pile of Sulphur Comparaduns growing slowly. This has been a great winter for fishing, but not such a great one for wrapping bugs. Oh well. Time spent in neoprene definitely trumps sitting at the desk anyway. I have started preparing the early summer arsenal with the usual array of flies. Hendricksons, Black Caddis, Sulphurs, Little Mahoganies, the list goes on and on. And thats not even counting the big four hatches of June.
Below, you will see a Sulphur Comparadun. It has a white microfibbet tail, cream dubbing, and a coastal deer hair. This is a great pattern from mid-May to mid-June. I have caught some large trout on Sulphurs, and my fair share have come on this exact pattern.
