Dick's Bluebottle

tied by deeky
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Panfish,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Material List:
Hook: Mustad 3399
Thread: Danville Flymaster 8/0, black
Tag: Flat mylar, blue
Body: Peacock herl
Hackle: Hen, black
Tying Instructions: About as simple as it gets. I do tie in the herls and then twist them with the thread before wrapping forward to help with a little more durability.

The second pic is a variant that uses a Jungle Cock body feather for the hackle.
