For those fans of alliteration. Tried tying with grizzly hackle behind the collar but it didn't really do much for the fly so I ditched it.


hook – WFC Model 6 #6
thread - UTC 140 black
tail - moose body hair
rib - tying thread
body - deer hair
collar - chukar
head - deer hair

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




clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of moose hair; tie in/trim, return thread to 2/3 mark






clean, stack, measure (tips just past bend) a clump of deer hair; trim butts at 2/3 mark on shank, tie in/spin








pull hair back, evenly distributing along the shank, rib to bend, then cross-rib back to 2/3 mark






tie in (folded) chukar feather by tip; wrap, tie off/trim






clean, stack, measure (tips to bend) a clump of deer hair; tie in with 2 soft loops, allowing hair to encircle hook, trim butts eve with hook eye, pull tight and spin










push hair back, half hitch x 2, SHHAN








Regards,
Scott
