Another simple pattern that's been hugely productive for me over a number of seasons.



Hook: Hayabusa 373 size 10
Thread: Danville's Flymaster Waxed 6/0
Rib: Soft red wire (small)
Cheeks: Red Holographic Tinsel

Step 1

Mount the hook in the vice, tie in the thread followed by the wire rib.



Step 2

In touching turns, take the thread down the shank, binding the wire to the side of the hook shank, to a point above the start of the barb.



Step 3

Return the thread up the shank in touching turns to a point where the thorax will begin. Rib the body with even turns of the red wire and tie off. Don't use your good fly tying scissors to snip off the wire, simply 'helicopter' it off by wiggling it in a small circle.



Step 4

Tie in a short length of red holographic tinsel,pointing backwards on each side of the shank at the end of the body / beginning of the thorax.



Step 5

Taking the thread forwards towards the eye and backwards to the tie in point of the tinsel, build a slightly bulbous thorax.


Step 6

Bring the holographic tinsel forwards to behind the eye on both sides and tie in. Cut off the excess and whip finish.




Step 7

That's the end of the tying but not the end of the process. What's needed now is some Sally Hansen 'Hard as Nails'



Coat the fly with as many coats of SH as are necessary to produce a smooth finish.



What you now have is a terrifically durable and effective fly. Fished as a point fly, on a longish leader attached to a midge tip and you have a very effective combination when allowed to drift around on the breeze or 'on the drop'.
