- Place the hook in the vise.
- Secure thread and wrap back to bend.
- Tie in a clump of elk hair and spin on the hook.
- Repeat step 3 again 2-3 times until you cover about 2/3 of the hook shank.
- Trim the body to shape as in the picture above. Leave some longer hair
pointing out the rear and trim the rest rounded to form a nice even body.
- Tie in a sized brown hackle at the 2/3 point where you finished the hair body.
- Wrap the thread forward to the head and tie in two stripped brown hackle stems
for the antennae.
- Make a few wraps between the antennae to splay them slightly.
- Wind the hackle for ward the the head with even spacing.
- Trim the hackle and whip finish under the antennae, trim thread and cement.
||This is another great lower river dry pattern. It can look
like the big caddis, stone flies, hoppers, and more. It floats well and is a killer
pattern when skipped back across the surface durning both caddis and stone fly hatches.
