tied by moskito_01
Fly Type: Deer Hair,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Material List:
Gamakatsu F14 size 12 hook,
UNI thread black 8/0,
yellow deer hair,
brown/red dubbing,
UNI Mylar #16,
LOON head cement
Tying Instructions: Cober hook with thread from front to back to the bend of the hook,
tie in Mylar,
form body with dubbing,
stack yellow deer hair and tie in behind the eye of the hook using an open loop, tie down deer hair moving towards the eye tightening thread more and more as you move along,
whip finish or half hitch (I never whip finish),
cement head,
you can soak the body, and only the body with silicone or vaseline/lighterfluid mix if you want. Makes it float better... supposedly

Presentation Tips: Cast downstream across the river and let it drift across. BAM !!! It`s deadly...
