Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Material List:
Tail: Olive marabou
Rib: Fine copper wire
Body: Damsel olive SLF
Hackle: Olive hen hackle
Tying Instructions: Take a hen hackle and strip the bottom side of the fibers from the feather, then attach at the front of the hook with the feather facing forwards. Take thread to rear, attach tail, rib, then dub a body all the way to just behind the hook eye and back to the rear of the thorax. Advance the rib to where the tying thread is, and tie off. Then wrap the hackle backwards three turns, and tie off. Carefully advance the thread to the eye, make a neat head and tie off.
