tied by tightlines
Fly Type: Nymphs,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Eastern Canada,
light ginger/brown dubbing
dark brown hackle
oval gold tinsel
Tying Instructions: attach thread to base of hook
tie in some natural woodduck for a tail
tie in some oval gold tinsel
tie in some more long woodduck (used for the back)
twist the light ginger dubbing onto the thread
wind it forward about 3/4s the way up the shank
bring the long woodduck piece you tied in towards the front of the hook (laying it ontop of the back)
tie it off
bring the oval gold tinsel up winding around the body of the fly.
tie it off
if you think you have enough woodduck to make a wingcase there is no need to tie in some more woodduck, if not tie more in.
twist on more dubbing wind it forward then use the woodduck to make a wingcase and tie that off.
I usually put a knot or two at this point so I can invert the fly to attach the legs but others will have there own technique.
Invert fly, cut some hackly out and tie it just beneatch the head of the fly. Depending on how much dubbing you tied in for the thorax, the legs should stick out more than just laying down the belly off the fly.
tie off a head and your done
Presentation Tips: regular nymph presentation
