A little less foam, a little more hair.

hook - Dai Riki 280 #10
thread - UTC 140 tan
tail - moose body
abdomen - 1mm foam tan
binder strip - foam
wing - elk hair
post - Congo Hair white
hackle - grizzly dyed brown
legs - rubber medium barred tan
thorax - dubbing tan

substrate prepared (refer to Carnage Stonefly); attach thread at tip




clean, stack some moose body, tie in, tie off, trim






a little Super Glue and start foam wraps; continue up body






trim, poke a hole where you want the hook to go and slide it on debarbed hook






mount body (same as Stonefly)












clean, stack, measure (extend a bit past foam body) elk, tie in, trim butts






wrap wing with non-tox wire to keep it out of the way for post production




tie in C-H, post up, brush with Sally






prep hackle, tie in shiny side out




add legs






move thread to eye, dub thread; dub thorax front to back (a few wraps on the wing), finish at base of post






wrap hackle down post, cup-side up






2 wraps at base of post to capture hackle tip, then once through thorax and half hitch x 2 at eye; trim, SHHAN






trim post & legs



ventral

Scott

Next trip is probably going to be to a little blue line for Westslopes; they're not real picky. Updated version with the mono core for durability and all synth wing for simplicity.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
core - 12lb mono
tail - deer hair
abdomen - 1mm foam orange
wing/post - Congo Hair white
hackle - grizzly/brown
legs - rubber medium brown
thorax - dubbing orange


Regards,
Scott

Scott, you inspired me to tie a carnage-style Drake to imitate the big ones that come off here. Only had time to tie one before my last trip up to the river, but it turned out ok and they were hatching so I tied it on. First cast, hooked into a nice (16-18") brownie; a few seconds later, he snapped me right off. I think I'm sold on this style!

Proportions are off, but the fish didn't care. Also, a gallows tool seems like a good idea, they're kind of a PITA without.

Stinks when you lose the only one you have, but at least it went out in a blaze of glory.

Absolutely. I like the duck flank wing
