Cast the thread on half way down the hook shank and wrap the thread down toward the bend. Tie on the tails. Tie on the ribbing followed by the dubbing brush. Wrap the tying thread back down the stem and tie on the Hackle which has been stripped on one side. The hackle should be tied to the shank appropriately by the tip or stem and should be lying out toward the eye. Wrap the body, followed by the ribbing, tying off and trimming the excess of each.
Dub the thorax fur directly to the tying thread, rough. Wrap it so it is on the eye side of the hackle. Lift the hackle while doing this so as not to trap the hackle fibers. Once completed, the thorax can be roughed up using a toothbrush or small piece of Velcro.
Wrap the hackle through the thorax, stroking the backwards as they it is wrapped, tie off and trim excess. Form the head, whip finish, and add cement. The hackles can be further enhanced by brushing back with a soft toothbrush.Presentation Tips:
Fish using the Leisenring lift, standard nymphing technique or on the swing.
