The tips of the hair for the Comparadun need to quickly taper to a sharp point and have a short overall length with slightly larger diameter butts. This hair usually comes from a whitetail deer, although it is sometimes from coastal deer that resemble mule deer hair more than that of a whitetail. This short deer body hair needs to have quickly tapered tips so there is still some hollowness to the hair at the tips. Hair with long wispy tips may be useable for larger-sized flies, but on smaller 18s and 20s, where the proportionate wing length becomes much shorter, these wispy tips provide no floatation and do not flare as well as hair with more diameter. You want the butt ends of the Comparadun hair to be larger diameter so they flare on the shank when you tie them down, spreading the tips in a nice arc across the top of the shank. This helps the fly float better. Natural color.
