Hendrickson comparadun and wet

Thought I would include a brief post on the Hendrickson comparadun and wet fly that have been working really well for me this season.  The flies are pretty standard except for the use of Red/Brown Caucci-Nastasi spectrumized dubbing for the body of the flies.  This is a tip I picked up from Rich Strolis' catching shadows site.  The dubbing appears yellowish red but turns brown when wet.
