  1. Thanks for the encouragement guys. I've been catching a lot of trout with this one in western WI. I'll post some more when I get up to speed with my new hobby.
  2. Hey everybody, I'm a complete rookie at this, this is the first fly I've made up drawing on my limited experience. If I've got something wrong or you want a better description, let me know and I'll do my best to correct my post. Thanks. Materials black crystal dubbing size 14 scud hooks rainbow colored brass beads dub wax flat tinsel black 8/0 thread med copper wire Midge Flash tan/pearl Step1 wrap the body(head to tail) with 8/0 thread Step 2 tie in the Med copper wire at the tail end of the body. Step 3 fold the Midge Flash so there are 8 strands running parallel, and tie this in at the tail of the body. Trim. Step 4 Next tie the Flat Tinsel in at the tail of the body. Trim any excess from the Head end of the Flat Tinsel. Step 5 Wrap the dub up the body stopping about 3/4 of the way up the body. Pull the Flat Tinsel up to the head of the fly, and wrap the Med Copper Wire up towards the head(wrapping in the opposite direction as the dubbing). Trim Med copper wire. Step 6 Pull Flat Tinsel Back Towards Tail. Finish wrapping dub up towards the head, overlapping several times. Trim Flat Tinsel. Step 7 Tie off 8/0 Thread and trim.
