Green Baetis Comparadun #16

Hook: TMC 100BL #16
Thread: Sheer 14/0 Green
Tail: Mayfly Tails White
Body: Taimen Beaver Dubbing Green
Wing: Wapsi Premo Deer Natural

The Baetis Comparadun is a great pattern for mayflies that sits deep in the film with a upright wing that leaves a good footprint in the film. With only 3 materials this is a easy fly to tie once you get the upright deer wing to stand correctly (this can take a couple of tries). Vary this with more or less (and different angles on the fan-out of the wing) to make it sit in different positions)
