Spring Comparaduns on the Delaware

May 13, 2007 By: Marshall Cutchin

“Caucci is best known for his Comparadun fly, whose low silhouette and buoyant deer hair wing solved the problem of how to fish for highly selective trout in very technical water. Of course, you have to cast properly, which, on the Delaware means a drag-free, downstream presentation; these finicky fish flee at the first sign of drag and will never respond to a classic upstream presentation.” Peter Kaminsky writes about a recent trip to the Upper Delaware and the spring hatches of Qull Gordons, Hendricksons and Green Drakes there.
