Tying directly to the hook obviates the need for a needle or whole body transplant. Started as a just-screwing-around attempt at a green drake but it turned out well enough; the foam provides plenty of positive lift and, incorporated onto the tail/underbody, is very durable. A few pics dropped out and had to re-shoot some of the initial sequence, so you may notice some discrepancies.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - UTC 140 olive brown
tail - moose body hair/Uni-stretch brown
abdomen - 1mm foam olive
thorax - dubbing olive
wing - hen hackle tips black
hackle - grizzly dyed olive (Hacklestacker)


mash barb, start thread, tie in a loop of Uni-stretch

River in town had a nice brown drake hatch and it used to bring up some decent fish; bugs are still there although the fish are few and far between these days.

thread - UTC 140 tan
core - 8lb mono
tail - moose body hair
rib - Danville monocord tan
abdomen - 1mm foam tan
thorax - dubbing tan
wing - partridge
hackle - barred cream

This color tends to play better for me south of Stumptown. Attempts to dye hackle purple have met with varying degrees of failure. Until I crack the code, it'll have to be grizzly; I doubt the fish will care.


hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 purple
core - 8lb mono
tail - moose body hair
abdomen - 1mm foam purple
thorax - Ice Dub purple
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - grizzly
