A B.C. pattern for selective trout. Easier to call it a Big Ugly, which it is, than a Down Wing Red Tag Dry, which is what it is.


hook - Dai Riki 300 #8
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - Craft Fur red
rib - x-small wire gold
body - peacock herl
wings - hackle tips grizzly
hackle - grizzly


mash barb, start thread at 2/3 mark; tie in rib, wrap to bend




cut a clump of Craft Fur (original called for dyed polar bear; fresh out); tie in trim (gap width)






tie in peacock; wrap to 2/3 mark, tie off/trim






counterwrap rib; helicopter end, cover with thread






prep hackle tips, convex to convex; measure (2x shank), tie in/trim








tie in hackle




wrap hackle; tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN








Regards,
Scott
