    A little different look that the Splitsville. Downwing, front-to-back hacklestacker; it'll ride low on the water.

    hook - Dai Riki 305 #14
    thread - MFC 8/0 olive
    abdomen - 1mm foam olive
    hackle post/indicator - 1mm foam orange
    wing - deer hair
    feelers - Krystal Flash rootbeer
    hackle - grizzly dyed olive
    thorax - dubbing olive

    mash barb; start thread at 70% mark and wrap back to bend

    tie in foam strip; wrap abdomen

    tie in post/indicator

    clean, stack, measure (gap width past bend) a clump of deer hair; tie in, trim butts

    tie in hackle at base of post

    tie in feelers

    half hitch thread, flip fly over and attach weighted hackle pliers to foam strip

    [​IMG]


    wrap hackle down post (thorax length), then back to base; tie off hackle and trim

    dub thread, dub thorax; finish at base of wing

    pull hackle back; tie down

    half hitch x 2, SHHAN; trim indicator and feelers

    not sure my eyes can spot that little bit of orange foam, so here's one with 2mm x 2mm foam post/indicator (head's a little bigger, but that's the tradeoff for visibility)

    PeeBucket caught up with my account. Photos for new SBSs are being loaded on Flikr, but the older stuff is now unavailable for viewing.

    Sorry folks,

    Some strange things are happening on the website. First we must learn Chinese to read the threads and now the 3rd party usage gauge has topped out. :confused:
