Why settle for one layer of foam goodness when you can have three? Change colors/size to suit your needs.


hook - Dai Riki 280 #6
thread - UTC 140 tan
underbody - Ice Dub hare's ear
body - 2mm foam tan, brown, dark brown
wing - Congo Hair grey
legs - medium rubber barred tan

mash barb, start thread




dub underbody, finish a little bit forward of the barb




taper foam (gap width); tie in (extend back gap width)






tie in a hank of CH




fold back, tie down 2nd foam strip




tie in legs




add a bit of dubbing and wrap forward (forgot to dub at first tie-in; optional)




pull foam forward and tie down






tie in another hank of CH




fold back, tie down 3rd foam strip




add front legs




a little dubbing




trim wings, legs, head



looks like a Fletcher class DD laying a smoke screen




Regards,
Scott

Mike,

This one's tied to (kinda) imitate a short-wing stonefly; there's a couple streams in MT where I see the shucks on the shoreside rocks throughout the summer. I've had a bit of luck with standard Chubbies but this one should float even better.

Regards,
Scott
