Fly Type: Deer Hair,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Other,
Hook - Curved emerger style hook (Kamasan B100)
Thread - Orange
Body - Peacock herl.
Rib - Orange mylar tinsel.
Wing - Deer hair.
Thorax - Hot orange dubbing mixed with chopped orange glo brite.
Cheeks - Orange mylar tinsel
Tying Instructions: 1 - Lay down a base of thread catching in both the peacock herl and orange tinsel.
2 - Give the shank a light coating of varnish (this makes the fly last a bit longer)
3 - Bring the peacock 2/3's up the shank in open turns, followed by the orange mylar tinsel in between the turns of peacock.
4 - Tie off the tinsel and peacock and trim the peacock.
5 - Fold back the tinsel and tie in the tip on the opposite side of the hook (for the cheeks).
6 - Tie in a bunch of deer hair with the tips facing forwards, leaving plenty of space back from the eye of the hook.
7 - Wind on a small amount of dubbing to form the back of the thorax.
8 - Pull back a small amount of deer hair and bind down with a few wraps of thread then a few turns of dubbing.
9 - Repeat the previous process until you have just enough room left for the head.
10 - Pull the left over tinsel forward to form the cheeks.
11 - Build a small head, whip finish, and apply head varnish
Presentation Tips: This is an emerger style, loch (Scottish lake) pattern all the way from the Orkney Islands in the north of Scotland. Where you can experience some of the best wild brown trout fishing in the UK! (I'm not being biased. Honestly it is that good).
Apply a small amount of floatant to the deer hair so that most of the fly sits upright in the surface film. Retrieve with a slow figure of 8 and hold on! Has also caught fish in rivers but not to the same extent.
