    hook - Dai Riki 320 #14
    thread - Uni 8/0 camel
    tail - golden pheasant tippets
    body - Hareline chartreuse
    wing - calftail white
    hackle - brown

    Not sure how long the Lime Trude's been around but it's a pretty little fly and easy to tie; hardest part for me is evening the calftail wing in a stacker -ugh!


    mash barb, attach thread at 60% mark and wrap back to point above barb

    separate a clump of pheasant tippet fibers

    measure for length (hook shank) and tie in

    apply some dubbing (Hareline's a bit spikey for this fly but it's all I had in this color so I'll make do)

    dub up to 60% mark

    clean and stack a clump of calftail

    measure for length (hook shank)

    and tie in with firm wraps 'cause calftail likes to wander

    [​IMG]



    smooth wing tie-in to allow the hackle to lay properly

    prep a hackle feather

    tie in

    wrap hackle forward, half hitch x 2, SHHAN

    If you use the original materials for a Trude, the wing should be white dog hair :)

    I saw a dachshund mix that just might work.
