Hook: TMC 200R #10-12
Thread: Light Cahill 6/0 Uni
Tail: Copper Krystal Flash
Rib: Single Strand Red Floss
Body: Tannish Yellow Dubbing
Wing: Deer Hair
Legs: Red Pheasant Tail - Knotted
Post: Poly Yarn
Step 1: Tie in three strands of Krystal Flash and clip short.
Step 2: Tie in floss.
Step 3: Dub body and rib with floss.
Step 4: Tie in wing.
Step 5: Tie in matching knotted pheasant tail fibers on opposing sides of body.
Now your fly should look like this. Make sure and cut the hair at a nice angle and cover all the butts with thread so you have a nice taper to put your post on .
Step 6: Tie in post and grizzly hackle.
Step 7: Dub thorax.
Step 8: Wrap hackle, tie off and whip finish.
Here is the finished fly. I like to wrap 5-7 turns
of grizzly hackle on them so they float really well and I can fish a copper john or similar nymph off them as a dropper. You can change the dubbing color to match your local bugs.
