Rusty Flymph

tied by Soft-hackle
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Material List:
Hook: Standard wet fly
Thread: Dark Brown Uni-thread
Ribbing: Fine Copper wire
Abdomen: A mix of red, yellow, cinnamon and brown rabbit dubbing to get a rusty orange appearance dubbed Leisenring style.
Hackle: Furnace hen-wrapped through the thorax.
Thorax: Dark brown rabbit dubbing
Tying Instructions:
Tying Instructions: Cast on the thread and wrap down to the bend. Tie on the copper wire. Tie on the rusty colored dubbing brush and wrap the thread back down the shank, about 2/3 of the way back, wrapping over the wire and thread ends of the brush. Remove any excess of the wire and thread. Wrap the abdomen, trim excess. Rib the abdomen with the wire, tie it off and trim excess.

Tie the hackle in by the tip where the abdomen stops, making sure you have enough hackle fibers to wrap through the thorax and around the collar. Dub on the dark brown dubbing, and rough it up with a bodkin or needle.

Wrap the hackle through the thorax and once around the collar. Tie it off and trim excess. While holding the hackle fibers back with the non-tying hands thumb and forefinger, slightly overwrap the hack to hold the fibers in a back-swept position. Wrap the head, whip finish and add cement.
Presentation Tips: Use on the swing, with the Leisenring lift, induced take or other active retrieve. Can be fished upstream in the film or just below, too.
