    Playing around with smaller Carnage-style bodies (instructions here if you're interested - http://www.washingtonflyfishing.com/forum/index.php?threads/carnage-stonefly-2-0-sbs.97395/)
    Tried some lighter iron on this fly, but I still think I prefer the DR 135. This one will be flush in the film (like the naturals), but it will float.

    hook - Dai Riki 125 #14
    thread - UTC 70 tan
    abdomen - 1mm foam
    underwing - Congo Hair honey mustard
    wing - deer hair bleached


    hot off the needle

    poke a hole in it and slide on the hook; start thread, brush on a little Super Glue and slide in place

    tie down foam tag end, trim and cover with thread

    tie in a hank of CH; figure-8, sweep back/lock in place with thread wraps and trim tips even with butt of foam

    clean, stack, measure (tips even with butt of foam) a clump of deer hair

    trim to length, tie in, half hitch x 2, SHHAN

    splay the deer hair (push down on the tie-in with your thumbnail) for a wider profile
