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
