All that foam keeps it on top, although it may be a bit hard to pick out in chop; this one floats pretty low and is better used in calmer water.


hook - Dai Riki 320 #16
thread/rib - UTC 70 tan
abdomen - dubbing tan
overbody/overhead - 1mm foam tan
wing - deer hair
head - dubbing dark hare's ear
indicator - 1mm foam orange


mash down barb, attach thread and wrap back to bend




taper foam strip (about 3/4 hook gap wide); tie in at bend






brush on a little Super Glue and cover foam with thread wraps, finish at 60% mark; dub thread, dub body back to bend






pull foam overbody over body




create first segment




pull foam back, move thread forward and repeat






and again and again








wrap foam down to the hook eye




clean, stack and measure a clump of deer hair; tie in






smooth butts and wrap down to eye




dub thread, dub head back to wing






pull foam overhead over head and tie down




tie in indicator; whip, SHHAN




trim foam, fly done; pretty simple, huh?




Regards,
Scott

just tied some of these up, great pattern. looks great with a couple wraps of brown CDC in a split thread right before putting the indicator on at the end.
