Tying Instructions: This pattern's orgins are from England. The original pattern called for a thread body with an overbody of pearl tinsel to give the fly a semi tranparent appearance. Also the the Thorax dubbing used was Olive Star Fire hair Dubbing. I decided to use the magic strechy cord to give it the same tranparent effect and made it a bit more durable in doing this. I mixed the olive dubbings the best I could to acheive the original effect of the fire star dubbing. This pattern is great for tailwaters used as a trailer fly.
