    Another throwback (think Reagan's 1st admin); dry variation (use your imagination) of the Hornberg.


    hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
    thread - UTC 140 tan
    body - tinsel opalescent
    inner wing - hackle fibers yellow
    outer wing - Mallard flank
    overwing - elk
    hackle - brown
    head - caribou


    mash barb, attach thread

    [​IMG]



    tie in tinsel at 50% mark (original pattern called for silver, couldn't find mine, so opalescent it is)

    [​IMG]


    wrap tinsel to bend and back to tie in point

    [​IMG]


    take a clump of hackle fibers, even tip

    [​IMG]


    tie in, let it extend hook gap length

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    find a pair of mallard flanks with even tips; peel off fibers 'til they're 1 hook gap wide and tie in even with underwing

    [​IMG]

    clean, stack some elk and tie in

    tie in hackle

    [​IMG]


    move thread forward to 75% mark

    [​IMG]


    clean a clump of caribou, trim tips, 2 soft loops and let it spin

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    repeat, tie off thread and SHHAN

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    flip fly over, lay razor blade on bottom of hook eye and push straight back

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    shape head with your favorite cutting devices

    [​IMG]


    re-attach tying thread behind head, wrap hackle forward to head

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    tie hackle off and there you go
