First saw this at the College Park show years ago during a demo by Barry Beck. Looked pretty cool, wasn't too hard to tie and it caught fish; gets my vote.


hook - Mustad 9671 #6
thread - UTC 6/0 olive
tail - marabou olive
flash - Krystal Flash rootbeer
body - hen saddle grizzly dyed olive
gills - saddle grizzly dyed red
legs - Sili legs olive
eyes - lead painted yellow
head - golden olive dubbing


mash barb and attach thread at 75% mark (make 2 small bumps; the eye will sit in the "saddle")





tie in eye on top of hook shank with figure 8 wraps; apply a little crazy glue to the wraps





wrap back to bend and tie in some strands of Krystal Flash on top of hook; let butts hang over front of fly





continue wrapping back to point above barb





measure marabou blood (shank length) and tie in





wrap marabou forward and trim





take half of the Krystal Flash butts and tie down along near side; other half on far side







prep a saddle hackle





and tie in





wrap hackle forward; keep it dense





tie in another saddle





and repeat





and again (depending on shank length, you may need additional feathers)





tie in red saddle





and wrap; stop behind eyes





tie in legs in front of eyes





take half and pull back on near side





secure behind eyes with a couple wraps





repeat on far side





grab legs, pull up and trim (shank length)







split thread (Mr. Beck used pre-made dubbing ropes; those are nice but I don't have any and am too lazy to make some)





and insert some dubbing





spin the bobbin to create dubbing rope





wrap dubbing behind, through and in front of eyes





when you think you have enough on the head, whip and SHHAN





trim Krystal Flash (let it extend a bit beyond tail) and you're done; try them in tan and black, too




Regards,
Scott
