Burst Biot

tied by dwiltshire
Fly Type: Wet,
Target Species: Trout,
Recommended Region: General Europe,
Imitation: Mayflies,
Material List:
Hook: B175 #12
Thread: 14/0 Sheer, tan
Hackle: Sunburst Grizzle hen
Tail: Wood duck
Abdomen: Turkey biot, pale
Thorax: Tiny noodle of hare's ear

Tying Instructions: Tied for the benefit of the great segmentation you get from a biot body, this is a drowned-dun imitation.

The hackle length should be fairly long to give the pulsatin movement through water - hopefully like washed out wings.
Presentation Tips: Upstream and dead-drift ideally. If the fish are taling stuck duns o spinners, this could work then too. I'll happlily grease the hackles of a spider and fish it as if it were dry. Great takes in the form of proper, gulping bulges ;-)
