Hook Wet fly 8- 18

Thread Black

Tail Golden Pheasant Crest

Body Traditional is black seals fur but I have used a mix of seals and antron

Hackle Black Cock palmered

Rib Silver oval

Head hackle Brown Hen


Run thread on and go to down to above the barb



Catch in a Crest feather and tie it n the length of the body.



Tie in silver oval on the way back to the tail



Dub on the body



Rough up the body with some Velcro I like how the antron gives a nice scruffy yet thin body.



Catch in a black cock hackle



Palmer it down the body and rib up with oval tinsel.



Tie in a brown hen hackle



Take 2-3 turn of hackle dependant on how you want the fly to look. I like this to be a good bushy for stripping during a sedge hatch. Then whip finish and varnish the head. Job done



Hope you enjoy
