    Natural version (for all the foam haters out there)

    hook - Tiemco 5212
    thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
    tail/back - deer hair
    body - deer hair orange
    hackle (body) - ginger
    hackle (front) - brown


    mash barb, attach thread at back end and wrap back to point above barb (leave tag end long)

    clean a clump of deer hair (no need to stack, trim to length)

    [​IMG]


    2 soft loops then allow to spin; pack it tight with fingernails

    [​IMG]


    repeat

    [​IMG]


    and again

    [​IMG]


    flip it over on it's back, lay a razor blade on hook eye and push straight back

    have at it with your favorite cutting implements; taper body (looks like I came up a bit chubby on this one)

    [​IMG]


    tie in body hackle, wrap to the back and tie off with tag end of thread (not sure if this is the best way; may start at the back next time and go forward)

    [​IMG]


    rest of the fly is the same as the foam version

    clean, stack a clump of deer and measure for length (hook gap)

    [​IMG]


    tie in, trim hair butts, cover with thread wraps and tie in front hackle

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    wrap hackle, tie off and trim

    [​IMG]



    pull deer hair back and tie down

    [​IMG]



    half hitch x 2, SHHAN front and back and you're done

    Nice tye, but is it me, or does that look a lot like a rusty Humpy?

    I like it though.
