  11. It's the email from Hatches Magazine with a link to this forum. FlyTyingForum.com: New Articles, Videos & Fly Patterns FlyTyingForum <[email protected]> http://hatchesmagazine.com/blogs/Hatches/files/2011/05/foam.jpg I think it is hopper called the club sandwich.Have seen a pattern similar years ago available from the Fly Shop in California. I have seen many variations of the club sandwich and all were really busy flies. This is really simple with less materials. I do know I have seen this fly before.

  17. Damsel in Distress Version 2 Extended Hook: Mustad 9671 #10 Olive grizzly marabou and 6 Olive seed beads. Thread: Uni Mono 4m Tail: Grizzly Olive Marabou Beads: 8 Small Olive glass beads Connecting: 30lb Clear mono Main Hook: Mustad 9672 #8 Thread: Uni clear and Lt. Olive 6/0 Tail: Olive Grizzly Marabou Body: Olive Grizzly Marabou Eyes: Oval lead free dumb bells Wing: Olive Grizzle Marabou wrapped around head and splayed towards the back I would first cut off the hook point past the barb. The beads have a hard time getting over the barb and the bend. I then string on 8 olive beads. Carefully to not lose any put the hook in the vise and make a large thread damn to hold the beads in. Tie in a single grizzly olive marabou for the tail. Make it the length of the shank. At this point put a little bit of super glue at that tie in point. Move your thread past the first two beads. Do this by just taking your thread under the two and making a few wraps. You don't need to go between each bead because you did the thread damn. In the water the thread pretty much turns clear. Pull the marabou back over the top of the beads and make a couple wraps. Again go to the next 2 beads and make a few wraps. Same as before take the marabou and pull it over the top and make a few thread wraps. Now skip 3 beads and make a few wraps leaving one bead in the front. Pull marabou and make wraps. Cut excess and whip finish. Add cement or superglue at the whip finish. With my trusty pliers I cut the rest of the bend off. I leave about 1/10 of an inch. Don't cut right to the end of the thread wraps. Put the main hook in the vise. With the 30lb clear mono thread it through the hook eye and measure leaving about an 8th of the shank. Start your clear thread and tie the mono in VERY well. From here I put 2 layers of super glue. I use the clear thread because it is thin. Make sure to keep the mono on top of the hook shank. Start your light olive 6/0 thread and tie in your eye and again put some super glue at this point. Tie in 2 marabou feathers with the tips just long enough to cover the eye. Wrap both feather to the back of the eye. You might get a lot of long feathers sticking out. You can keep these or pull some out which is what I do. Tie off the feather behind the eye. Tie in another marabou feather to the length of the tail on the main hook. This is the tricky part. Take the tip and wrap it away from you, under the eye of the hook, and back through the middle of the top of the dumb bell eye. From there tie off, add head cement and you are done. Hope you guys have as much tying this one as I did designing it. I really liked doing this step by step so I plan on doing some more. Thanks for looking. HAPPY TYING!!
