tied by cornmuse
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Central US,
Imitation: Caddis Flies,
Hook: Gaeilic Supreme or similar 1xl wet fly hook, size 10 to 16.
Thread: Black 8/0, 70 denier:
Body: Gray or dun colored wool yarn or dubbing
Tail: Grey or blue dun hen hackle, rolled and about as long as the hook shank
Wing: "Gimp" feather from the base of a Lady Amherst pheasant neck feather
Hackle: Same as tail, two turns and swept back in a soft hackle style.
Tying Instructions: Tie the wing flat - other than that its a pretty standard wet fly. Full step-by-step instructions and a video of the fly tying process is available from www.flyfishohio.com
Presentation Tips: Dead drift or with slight motion, this is a great imitation of a sowbug or caddis pupa. It's just a really fine searching pattern for trout and warm water, too!
