Never a big fan of the original which was pretty much a collection of materials that tended to soak up water tied on a substantial piece of iron.

hook - WFC Model 28 #10
thread - UTC 140 olive
core - 8lb mono
tail/underbody - elk hair
abdomen - 1mm foam olive
thorax - peacock herl
legs - medium rubber black
wing - Congo Hair white
hackle - grizzly dyed olive


Put a loop on one end of the mono

Brush hook shank with Super Glue; tie in mono

Clean, stack, measure (about 2 1/2 times hook length) a clump of elk hair; trim butts/tie in, hook loop end onto gallows (I have no idea what it’s focusing on in the second photo)

Brush underbody with Super Glue, wrap foam up to base of tail, increasing tension to create slight taper

I'm confused on what you're doing with the mono. Is the loop that's tied in used as the tail extension so you have 2 strands of mono for support?

Nate,

One end of the mono has the loop, the other, straight end is tied to the hook shank. Once the hair for the tail/underbody is tied on, the loop end of the mono is hooked onto the gallows tool and the hair is wrapped on to the mono core. Here’s what the gallows looks like

And here’s how I made one. Hope this helps.

Does it just provide support for when you're wrapping the fly with the foam?

It provides support when wrapping, and afterward; keeps the body intact after it’s been chewed on by fish. Adam Trina’s original Carnage had a body made by wrapping the foam on a waxed needle, sliding it off the needle and wrapping the body to the hook - it was tricky to construct and fragile. The first one I tried caught a fish on the first cast (a 14” squawfish/pike minnow that executed a beautiful, rainbow-like rise). When I went to remove it from the fish’s mouth, the body came right off. Took me a while to figure a way to make it more durable; the mono core seems to be the best method for me.

Regards,
Scott
