Ben Furimski pattern; a fusion of the LaFontaine Spruce Fly and Puterbaugh Caddis. Pretty simple to tie; it'll ride pretty low but still float. Change colors to suit your needs.


hook - Dai Riki 305 #16
thread - Uni 8/0 tan
body - 2mm x 2mm foam tan
underwing - Congo Hair tan
wing - deer hair
head - deer hair, stacked/trimmed


mash barb and attach thread; lay down a base for body tie-in





melt end of foam with a lighter and squeeze with pliers; measure for length (shank)




add a drop of Super glue to thread base and tie in foam




tie in a sparse hank of Congo Hair, fold back and tie down; trim to length








clean, stack a clump of deer hair; measure for length (body)




2 firm wraps (don't let it spin)




pull butts straight up and trim at an angle



left these a bit long (first time tying this fly; adjustments will be made)




flip fly over; clean another sparse clump of deer hair, tie in, allow it to flair but not spin






repeat for top and bottom







half hitch x 2, SHHAN, trim head





same fly on an emerger hook (Dai Riki 125)




Regards,
Scott

One of the first flies I learned to tie. My entry into fly tying and the dry fly hackle shortage coincided. This was a great fly that doesn't require any fine hackle. I tied it for the first fly swap I entered (foam swap)

Thanks for the SBS.
