tied by Soft-hackle
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Material List:
Hare Lug And Plover (flymph style)

Hook: Standard wet fly 12-16

Thread: Orange

Hackle: Golden Plover

Body: Tannish Hare’s Mask spun on orange thread dubbed Leisenring style and so a little of the thread shows through.


Tying Instructions: Tie on the hackle by the stem so the tip points out, over the eye. Wrap the thread down the shank to the bend and tie on the duubing brush. Wrap the thread back down the shank forming a slightly tapered underbody. Wrap the dubbing brush down toward the eye. Tie off and trim excess. Wrap the hackle-2 turns- tie off and trim excess. While holding the hackles swept back with the non-tying hands thumb and forefinger, slightly overwrap the hackle fibers to hold them in position. Form the head, whip finish, and add cement.
Presentation Tips: Use as a standard wet fly; with the Leisenring lift, on the swing or upstream or down in the film or just below.
