Another gift from our friends across the pond. Wing size is a compromise between those I've seen on Caithness and Frankie McPhillips sites. This one's supposed to flop on it's side; most of my dries do the same thing, inadvertently, without the fancy spinnaker.

hook - Dai Riki 300 #10
thread - Danville 6/0 brown
tail - pheasant tail
rib - Uni-Stretch camel
body - dubbing cream
wing - mallard flank dyed olive
hackle - grizzly dyed olive (oversize by 1)

mash barb, start thread, wrap to point above barb



measure (hook length x 2) some pt barbs; tie in/trim (easier to manage them if you keep them on the stem)





tie in rib



dub thread/dub body to 2/3 mark





take first turn of Uni-Stretch flat (keeps the tail from torquing), then twist and rib body; tie off/trim





measure (hook length x 2) mallard flank, tie in/trim; take a few wraps in front to set the wing angle







tie in hackle



wrap hackle, tie off/trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN







Regards,
Scott

Can you say line twist... ;)
My first thought as well. I can only imagine how this thing reacts when being pulled through the air.

Can you say 2x tippet...:p
The twist is probably one of the reasons it rolls over.

I was thinkin' more like...

Spin it up in the air; Unwind in the water.
I think they call that a "spinner"...
Ya know, the other type.

Is that still called fly fishing?
