RUH - Real Ungulate Hair; had to change the name since I used elk for the body/wing and moose for the tail in addition to the deer hair hackle. A single wing (semi-comparadun) would have saved some steps; change color/size to suit your needs.


hook Dai Riki 300 #10
thread/rib - UTC 140 tan
tail - moose body hair
hump/wing - yearling elk hair bleached
body - dubbing dun
hackle - deer hair

Mash barb, start thread at 3/4 mark, wrap to bend

Clean, stack, measure (gap width past bend) a clump of moose body hair; tie in/trim

(Optional)
Split wing with thread wraps; post wings with wraps around each base

Create thread loop at front of body, wax heavily

46679704505_c6e23cb3b5_c.jpg


Clean and stack a clump of deer hair, insert in clip and distribute evenly; set length (approx 1.5 gap width), trim butts

Insert clip in loop, release (even tips if necessary, spin

32652855807_e3a714c726_c.jpg


Wrap hackle, tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN (optional - trim hackle underneath); looks like the tail came up just a bit short but it should still balance the fly

Wow great SBS I love the look of deer hair instead of hackle
