Producer: Tim Flagler

Matt Grobert demonstrates how to tie a Hendrickson Sparkle Dun, a pattern designed to ride low in the film but still float well.  “They are especially effective when finicky trout start refusing higher-riding hackled offerings,” notes Tim Flagler. Grobert ties this one on a Dai-Riki #305 size 12 dry fly hook, with olive 6/0 Danville for thread.
