SBS Extended Deer Hair Body Attractor


Active Member

Found something similar on the interweb. Made a few adjustments but this isn’t the last iteration; think it could use a few more refinements.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #8
thread - UTC 140 cream
core - 8lb mono
tail/abdomen - deer hair
ribbing - tying thread
wing - deer hair
legs - medium rubber brown
hackle - grizzly/ginger

Create a loop in the mono; ash barb, start thread at midpoint, tie in mono

Clean, stack a clump of deer hair; trim butts/tie in, allowing the hair to surround the shank

Hook the loop onto the gallows

Spiral the thread up, take a couple firm turns at the top; return to the tie in

Trim mono and deer hair tips

Clean, stack, measure (tips to tail) a clump of deer hair; trim butts/tie in

Tie in legs

Tie in hackles

Wrap hackles, tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN, trim out hackle underneath
