Sanchez Ragtop

Recommended Posts

Couple mods to Scott Sanchez Convertible - added foam for floatation (landau roof?) and, for smaller (#12-14) swapped Congo Hair for the calftail Trude/Wulff wing (less bulk at tie in; still like calftail for #10 and larger). Lot of the steps are similar to the Neversink Trude; front end's a bit different. Great little fly for pocket water; the Trude/Wulff combo wing is very visible.

 

 

hook - Dai Riki 320 (#12)

thread - Uni 6/0 camel

tail - moose body

body - peacock herl

overbody - 2mm foam strip brown

wing - Congo Hair white

hackle - saddle brown/grizzly

legs - round rubber brown (med)

 

 

attach thread to hook at about the 60% mark

Cutts love it in rusty orange; tan, green, yellow, black, even purple have been effective. Calftail wing versions
