This would be considered as "part II" of the Acetate Floss Leach or "the Acetate Stick Leach". It was tyed with the same dubbing brush as The floss leach pattern. But,to finish this fly you must know that Acetate Floss is like no other floss. It "melts" when you coat it With acetone. To create this effect you pour a small amount of acetone in a container and in a well vetilated area, you simply paint the fly using a cheapo paintbrush dipped in the acetone. I use the normal stuff because it has less fumes than the high octane stuff and it doesn't evaporate as quickly. I star by turning the fly upside down in the vise and milkig the fibers away friom the hook and towards the top of the fly and back .
Then I turn the fly right side up and continue milking all of the fibers towards the rear of the hook. Allow to dry overnight and while it is still wet, put a small bend in the back of the tail so that when you "pull the fly" the tail walks to one side . When you look at this fly in the water it is hard to tell the difference between it and the real... Remember SPARSE.
