Tying the CDC Split Wing Sparkle Dun

Tying the CDC Split Wing Sparkle Dun

The name is a mouthful. Got to improve the fly naming skills. Well it works anyway.

Blue Winged Olives (aka Baetis) create superb early and late season hatches. This simple but effective take on the sparkle dun pattern features a split CDC wing. Fish this fly as fish begin to feed on the surface. Its fine if the fly hangs a bit in the film. This fly can even be tied on a curved shank emerger hook to fish as an emerger.
