Fly Type: Miscellaneous,
Target Species: Freshwater Bass,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Material List:
Hook: 3x long curved nymph hook, size 10
Thread: Uni Thread 8/0, black
Weight: Heavy lead wire
Tail: Hen, black
Rib: Copper wire, medium

Tying Instructions: I did bend the hook beyond the original bend to the shape I wanted. Lay a thread base and tie in two hen hackles flat to eachother as a tail, bending opposite the curve of the hook. Tie in rib, back, and hackle. Lash two lengths of lead wire to the outside of the hook curve. Dub body and wrap hackle forward. Pull back forward and then wrap rib counter to the hackle. Whip, snip, and fish.
