tied by J Desjardins
Fly Type: Nymphs, Terrestrials & Midges,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: TMC 200RBL, #20 used here
Thread: Olive 8/0
Body: Olive goose biot
Thorax: Peacock herl


Tying Instructions: Wrap a base coat of thread stopping partially down bend of hook. Pull a biot from the strip of feathers (don't cut it) and tie it in with the dimple on the base of the feather towards the eye of the hook. Wrap the biot forward and tie off. Tie in a piece of peacock herl, wrap 3-5 turns then tie off.

If you reverse the direction of the dimple on the biot you will get a smooth body, rather than the ribbed look. The biots are easier to work with if you soak them between a couple of pieces of wet paper towels for a couple of hours before tying.

The white flys are the same pattern in size 26.
