Mohican Mayfly - Oliver Edwards
tied by mrcaddis
Fly Type: Hairwing,
Target Species: Trout,
I substituted the material from what Oliver Edwards calls for in his book "Flytyers Masterclass".
Materials I used:
Hook: Mustad 94840, size 12
Thread: 8/0 white waxed
Tails: Dark Moose Mane
Body: White, fine closed-cell foam, cut a strip 1/8" (3mm) thick by 3/32" wide (2mm) by 6" (150mm) long
Thorax and Head: Same as the body
Wing: Dark Deer Hair
Hackle: Ginger (tied parachute style)
Presentation Tips: If you like Oliver Edwards patterns as I do. I recommend his book and DVDs. The book is well illustrated on tying patterns such as:
Heptagenid nymph, Baetis nymph, Mohican, Rhyacophila (larva, pupa), popa caddis and others.
