For those fans of alliteration. Tried tying with grizzly hackle behind the collar but it didn't really do much for the fly so I ditched it.

 

 

hook WFC Model 6 #6

thread - UTC 140 black

tail - moose body hair

rib - tying thread

body - deer hair

collar - chukar

head - deer hair

 

mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark; wrap to bend

clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of moose hair; tie in/trim, return thread to 2/3 mark

Hey Scott,

A lot of your flies use chukar... Are you using the wing feathers? The bird skins I see online look like most of the feathers are a solid dun, except for the wings. Is that right?

Thanks for your many posts btw

I use the flank feathers; I really like the effect they make

By the way, you can buy the flank feathers separately if you dont want a full skin.

 

Regards,

Scott
