    Default Sparkler for the Fourth






    A different take on the Sparkle Dun.

    Regular deer hair Comparadun wings
    Trailing Shuck of UV Pearl Ice dub

    Few wraps of light Dun Hackle behind and in front of Comparadun style wings.

    May cut Hackle flat or very short beneath the body

    Interesting twist on a classic pattern Byron. I'd guess the back would sink, presenting an entirely different profile compared to a standard Sparkle Dun. Nicely tied as always!
