This is a very simple, yet very effective pattern, that provides for practice of basic techniques and proportion and uses minimal materials . . .

Hook: Hayabusa 373 Size 10 - Allround Medium Weight Sproat
Thread: 6/0 Danville's Flymaster Waxed - Black
Rib: Extra fine oval silver
Hackle: Black Hen



Step 1

Place the hook in the vice - note just the bend in the jaws, not the point - and start the thread about a mm behind the eye . . .



Step 2

Continue the thread, in touching turns, to opposite the point and tie in the oval tinsel. Continue the thread to a point above the start of the barb.



Step 3

Again in neat, touching turns, take the thread back to a couple of mm behind the eye, then back down two thirds of the hook shank and back again to give a hint of taper to the body.



Step 4

Now wind the rib forward with five even turns and tie off with 2 / 3 turns of thread. Trim off the excess.




Step 5

Now choose a black hen hackle where the barbs are slightly longer than the hook gape and tie in with a couple of turns of thread.



Step 6
Wind the hackle forward, no more than two turns, tie off, carefully stroke back any wayward barbs and cut away excess hackle.



Step 7

Whip finish, a drop of varnish and you're done!

Something very odd has happened to this post . . . it now includes the images from the subsequent post and not the original ones? Bizarre!

I've been in and edited them back in!
