Fly Type: Nymphs,

Hook: long shank curved nymph hook
Thread: Camel 8/0 uni

Tying Instructions: tie on thread at eye and form a thread base. Attach a small clump of wool just above the barb,on top of shank, trim to shape, add first set of tail spikes. Attach wool of different colours on top and sides of shank and second set of spikes on the sides.trim to shape(found it best to trim roughly while looking at fly from the rear).
Add first wool spike on top and in middle of shank, then add wool to the sides of the shank. This is done untill the point of the hook is reached.sets of spikes are added every second set of wool that is added. When the hook point is reached wool is added to the bottom of the shank.when all spikes are added and thorax is reached trim the body of the fly, then add legs. The firs set is tied in with the tag of the legs tied in. the second set of legs the tag is tied to hook eye and this forms the shellcase. the third set of legs is used to attach the eyes. the shell case is brought back over the eyes and secured by wrapping arround eyes parchute style.the thread is then whip finnished behind eyes. Legs are then bent to shape by heating bodkin. Spikes are trimmed and coated with softbody.when dry they can be better trimmed and bent to shape. The body of the fly is then trimmed and the head is coloured with a brown marker and a silver marker in front of the eyes. The colours are then blended.
