Comparadun Deer Hair Wings

Many dry fly patterns out there are effective, yet one I consistently turn to is the Comparadun tied with a deer hair wing. In this fly tying tutorial, I discuss this great pattern and show the process for tying the complicated wing.

Thanks for viewing this YouTube fly tying tutorial, and I encourage you to view my additional videos at the following website:

Chubby Chaser
This is the first in a series of fly tying videos by Oregon Fly Fishing Blog's Matt and Nate Stansberry. Based in Cleveland, the Stansberry brothers are fly fishing the backwaters of Lake Erie and the other Great Lakes for four species of bass, and some toothier predators. This fly in particular is called the Chubby Chaser. It's a spun deerhair bass bug designed to be fished on a sinking line on deep structure. The fly floats or suspends off the bottom. Try these in white, black, or other color combinations for any warmwater predators. Buy materials at
