Fly Type: Miscellaneous,
Target Species: Steelhead,
Recommended Region: Northwest US,
Imitation: Anchovies,
Material List:
Hook: Daiichi Alec Jackson Black 2051 #3-#7.
Tail: Texas Whitetail Deer Hair.
Tag: Claret Silk Floss.
Body: Peacock Herl then Black Ostrich Herl Twisted with Fine Oval Tinsel.
First Hackle: Grizzly Dry Fly Rooster Hackle.
Second Hackle: Guinea Breast Feather Dyed Claret.
Head: Benecchi 12/0 Wine Thread Coated with Sally Hansen's Hard as Nails Lacquer.
Tying Instructions: Twist both peacock herl and then ostrich herl with tinsel by grabing the strands and tinsel together with hackle pliers; then attach a shepherd's crook to the pliers and twist to form herl rope. This method re-inforces the fragile herl and adds to the durability of the body.
