5 days on the road; sequestered in my mountain redoubt under quarantine,  so I have to break the adhesions and get the synovial fluids moving again.  Tied more than enough of the standard variety so added a little partridge up front to break the monotony.

hook - Dai Riki 300 #10
thread - Uni 6/0 camel
rib - x-small wire copper
body - dubbing tan
hackle - barred ginger
wing - deer hair
collar - partridge


Regards,
Scott

Tied here skwala-ish; it would work better in motor-oil colors but the olives were on the top of the travel kit and I am inherently lazy.  Here’s the video.  Swapped out the polypro indicator for another petrochemical byproduct and used some different leggings, neither of which the fish will care about at all

hook - Dai Riki 300 #8
thread - UTC 140 olive
egg sac - Congo Hair black
body - dubbing olive
wing - deer hair dyed olive
head - 2mm foam olive
legs - medium rubber dun
indicator - 1mm foam orange
 

Regards,

Scott
