Tying Instructions: The key to this pattern is to build a skeleton with superhair - I imagine Fish hair would do just as well. Super hair is a thick synthetic material, treated with a dab of softex this will provide foul protection for the much more lively yak hair and create a solid foundation to build the fly on.

Keep the yak hair sparse it will aid casting and also give the fly that almost invisible quality many baitfish have.
Presentation Tips: I like to strip these in on a fast sinking line near the bottom.
