FTD Whistler

 
tied by FlatzFatz
Fly Type: Attractor Pattern,
Target Species: Redfish,
Recommended Region: Southeast US,
Imitation: Shrimp/Prawns,
Material List:
FTD Congo Hair
FTD Dubbing, I thinks it's black widow...label fell off
Mustad 3407DT, I used them because their cheap :-). Size
yours according to need.
Danville, flat waxed 210 denier
Painted lead eyes, use bead chain for a authentic whistler and slower sink rate.

Tying Instructions: Start a eye and wrap to mid-shank

attach eyes on bottom of hook clouser style..vary placement to effect action.

Tie in Congo Hair around mid-shank, keeping all material on the bottom of hook. I came back under the material a couple of times to give it the angle I wanted.

Make a dubbing loop and continue thread to the eyes and place into a bobbin holder.

Place dubbing into loop and spin to give it a hackle like look.

Rotate vice (or dubbing loop) forward to eyes while palmering material back

Tie off and cut loop.

Build head, whip finish or half hitch.

Coat with cement

Enjoy!

I didn't whip finish because I suck at it...Same reason I didn't mark the tail with a marker. Working on it.
