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.
