Pinkie

 
tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Weighted,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Material List:
Hook: YK4G #14
Ballast: 2mm and 2.5mm tunsten beads
Thread: 10/0 Powersilk, olive
Body: Pink floss
Thorax: Wapsi Superfine #26 (tiny amount)
Tying Instructions: Get the floss body tapered and slim. Rib is the tying thread. Two tungsten beads give the the ballast - and on a #14, my preference is for a 2mm and 2.5mm bead slotted together. Note that the second bead is tied on in 'reverse' so that the counter-sunk base sits over the first bead.
Presentation Tips: Short line. Presented with another, heavier fly as necessary.
