Biot Extended Body Mayfly

tied by BandMan
Fly Type: Dry,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: Northeast US,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: Emerger, size to match natural
Extended Body: Poly Yarn
Tails: Dark Blue Dun Microfibets
Extended Body: Turkey Biot over Superfine Dubbing (used to build taper)
Thorax: Superfine Dubbing
Wings: Rooster Neck, reverse half-hackle style
Hackle: Color to match natural, tied postless-parachute (with mono)
Tying Instructions: An extended body tool will make this MUCH easier to tie. I rigged up a C-clamp from an old vise and attached it to my desk. I then ran the cord from a retractor through it and fitted a barrel swivel to the end of it. Pull the cord over to the poly yarn (tied in forming a loop), then use the rotary function of my vise to wrap my thread and materials on the extended body.
Presentation Tips: Best used on still or slow water.
