This fly can be tied using tan furs and thread.
Tying Instructions: Tie the thread onto the shank in about 1/3 the shank length from the eye, toward the bend. Tie on the hackle, which should be stripped off on one side, appropriately by the stem or tip. Wrap the thread down the shank around the bend. Tie on the gold wire, then the dubbing brush for the abdomen. Wrap the thread back down to near the hackle. Wrap the abdomen. Tie off and trim excess. Rib the abdomen with the wire, Tie off and trim excess. Wrap the hackle. Tie off and trim excess. While holding the hackle back with the non-tying hands thumb and forefinger, slightly overwrap the hackle fibers to hold them in position. Tie on the dubbing brush for the thorax and wrap it in front of the hackle. Tie off and trim excess. With a soft wetted toothbrush, brush the thorax fibers back toward the bend to help clear the eye. Form the head, whip finish, and add cement
Presentation Tips: This pattern was borrowed from my friend Jim Slattery. He's a great tier, himself, and I could not resist tying and using this pattern. I use it anytime, in the surface or just below up or downstream, on the swing or with the Leisenring lift.
