Getting to be that time out here. No chickens were harmed in the construction of this fly; hackle replaced by combo wing/UFD (ungulate floatation device). In the future, may use hot orange foam for pad to increase visibility.

hook – Dai Riki 320 #12
thread - UTC 140 tan
shuck - Congo Hair brown
rib - Uni-Stretch brown
body - dubbing light tan
wing pad - 1mm foam tan
wing - deer hair


Mash barb, start thread one eye width from eye




Clean, stack,measure (hook length) a clump of deer hair; trim, tie in with 2 soft loops (spin bobbin to tighten up the thread first), spin








Tie in CH; fold back, tie in rib and wrap to bend






Tie in foam strip, wrap up to wing butts




Dub body




Counterrib body, tie off/trim; trim shuck






Fold foam; tie down/trim

Thanks for that scott, I am heading for West Yellowstone on Tuesday. That fly is one I have to work on in the next few days. Was thinking of doing some CDC versions . They appear a bit easier.
