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





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




wrap tinsel to bend and back to tie in point




take a clump of hackle fibers, even tip




tie in, let it extend hook gap length






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






clean, stack some elk and tie in






tie in hackle




move thread forward to 75% mark




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






repeat, tie off thread and SHHAN






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






shape head with your favorite cutting devices




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






tie hackle off and there you go





Regards,
Scott
