The Olive Comparadun is a great early season Trout Fly. Originally attributed to Al Caucci and Bob Nastasi who introduced the Comparadun style of dry in the early 70's this dry fly features a very simple and durable design as it only requires 3 different materials to create. The materials used, however, allow the fly to float effortlessly on the water. With hair wings splayed on top of the hook and an outrigger tail it offers stability and floation as well as a similar footprint to that of a Mayfly, but with a few differences, such as the 180 degrees spanned wing which gives it an easy-to-see profile, allowing any hungry Trout to spot it and go for a strike.
