    Another Icelandic take on the Bugger; added the rabbit up front for a bit more action. Weight as desired; left this one light to throw at frustrated stillwater spawners in the shallows. hook - Dai Riki 700 #4 thread - UTC 140 black tail - marabou black flash - Flashabou pearl butt - chenille...

    RUH - Real Ungulate Hair; had to change the name since I used elk for the wing and body. Took the basic Carnage framework and draped it with said ungulate hair. Notional tying sequence; body's a bit chunky, a few less tail fibers next time. Tied here as a Fall Drake; change color/size to suit...
  9. Fly Tying
    Found this on Frankenfly; an old-school Michigan fly from Gary McClain. Original was tied with Lion Wool-Ease Chunky Walnut yarn; the same material his uncle, Jerry McClain, used to tie the famous McClain Drake. Take a sheep and drop it in the middle of a lake; it's gonna drown. Take a wad of...

    MDM - Marcy Dam Mayhem. Found this one on thenorthriver.blogspot.com A few mods to the original - subbed calftail for the wing (so maybe it should be the MDM Calftail?) and hackle fibers for the throat; weight is optional. hook - Mustad 9671 #8 thread - Danville 6/0 black tail - golden...

  19. Fly Tying
    My apologies to Hans but this floats better and I can see it when the light goes off the water; dubbing loop allows use of poorer quality CdC, of which I have a sizable quantity. Also works as a small hopper (legs optional) or a Spruce Moth. hook -Dai Riki 305 #14 thread - UTC 140 tan...
  20. Fly Tying
