tied by BoSmith
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Western Canada,
Imitation: Stone Flies,
Material List:
Tail - Black Goose Biots
Under Body - Black Burlap
Abdomen - Black Emu Palmered over Burlap
Shell Back - Black Flashabou
Rib - Black Wire
Thorax - Black Dubbing
Legs - Black Hen Hackle
Wing Case - Turkey Quill

Tying Instructions: Use the burlap to tie a wide body by layering the burlap on the sides of the shank of the hook as to not close up the hook gap and give the nymph a more realistic profile.

Palmer the emu hackle forward, pull flashabou over and lock down with rib.

Tie in turkey quill, form thorax and tie in legs by tying in a hen feather over top of the shank and sweeping the fibers down and back prior to tying down.

Tie in antenna and pull shell back over.

Apply clear coat to reinforce shell back if desired.
