Carters bug

Hi folks,


Here is the best Atlantic Salmon dry fly out there. Yes even better than a bomber.


Hook is a TMC7989 size 4, yellow thread, rusty brown hackle, and of course deer hair.


The tail is about 15 strands of deer hair that is not stacked. I then begin to spin the deer hair all the way up. The most important part is to not pack the deer hair tight, it must be very soft to the touch. Once the body is done, tie in 2 hackels

at the front and do a complete turn in front and work your way back, about 3 turns. Then wrap your thread back through

the hackel to secure it and tie off.



Enjoy Rick.
