Another cool lake fly from B.C.

hook - Dai Riki 135 #10
thread - UTC 140 olive
shuck - Congo Hair white
rib - Mirage Flash opal
abdomen - Crystal Chenille olive
wingcase/wing - deer hair
hackle - ginger

mash barb, start thread; tie in shuck



fold back, tie in rib, wrap halfway down bend



tie in chenille; wrap just past the hook point, tie off/trim





counterwrap rib; tie off/trim





clean, stack, measure (hook length + thorax) a clump of deer hair; tie in, trim butts







tie in (folded) hackle by tip (a good webby saddle gives a nice two-tone effect); stroke fibers back and wrap forward thru thorax, tie off/trim





pull deer hair forward; tie down, half hitch x 2, SHHAN





trim shuck (hook length)







Regards,
Scott
