Ted Kraimer's tilt-wing variation, with the deer hair body style common to the Michigan tying community. Tied here for a March Brown, this has possibilities for lots of other bugs.


hook - Mustad 94840 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - moose body
body - deer hair
rib - tying thread
wing - deer hair
hackle - grizzly dyed brown
thorax - dubbing tan


mash barb, start thread at 70% mark (reference point for wing); wrap back to point above barb




clean, stack, measure (hook shank) a clump of moose body; tie in, wrap butts to 70% mark








clean, stack, measure (tips should extend to the back of the bend) a clump of deer hair




2 soft loops, slowly apply/release/apply tension and let the hair surround the hook shank




spiral rib to the bend, then a couple tight wraps to flare the tips; return crossing wraps to 70% mark, tie off, trim, smooth with thread








clean, stack, measure (extend tips to bend) a clump of deer hair




tie in, pull butts up and dam with thread






tie in hackle, cup side up




dub thread, dub thorax, finish at base of wing






wrap hackle, each successive wrap under the previous one, then let hackle hang and trap with thread wraps at the base of the wing; half hitch x 2 at eye (with one wrap through thorax), trim hackle tip, SHHAN








trim wing butts and you're done
