Material List:
Iron Blue Dun Flymph

Hook: Standard wet fly 12-18

Thread: Red or claret

Hackle: Jackdaw or Dark Blue dun colored Starling- short

Body: Mole dubbing spun on red or claret thread Leisenring style. The thread should be showing through distinctively at the tail end of the body.

Tying Instructions: Tie the hackle first to the shank, tip pointing out, over the eye. Wrap the thread down the shank to the bend and tie on the dubbing brush. Wrap the thread back down the hook to behind the hackle. Wrap the body, tie off, trim excess. Wrap the hackle, tie off and trim excess. With the thumb and forefinger of the non tying hand, hold the hackles in a back-swept position and with the tying thread slightly overwrap the hackles to hold them in this position. Wrap the head, whip finish and add cement.
Presentation Tips: An excellent imitation for both grayish caddis and mayflies, this fly has been around for a long time. Use it upstream or down in the surface or just below; as a nymph, on the swing or utilizing the Leisenring lift.
