Those are flat-out gorgeous flies!
How about a SBS?
Thanks for sharing your art with us...
Thank you Jim!
These are the steps I use to tie this fly on the A.J. #1.5 blind eye hook:
1. Tip – 10 turns of XS oval tinsel or small Ultra-wire starting just above hook point.
2. Tail – left and right Peacock Sword fibers (3 each)
3. Rear Body – large Holo tinsel (double wrapped) with medium oval rib
4. Rear Wing – sparse amount of yellow calftail with yellow GP rump feather tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to end of tail.
5. Hackle – long fibered pheasant rump feather (ok to use 2 feathers)
6. Front Body – wool yarn roughed up with Velcro tool and a medium Holo tinsel rib
7. Middle Wing- sparse amount of rust calftail & a little Angel hair, with a reddish GP feather tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to the end of the yellow wing.
8. Hackle – long fibered pheasant rump feather (ok to use 2 feathers) with a few turns of legal Heron in front
9. Collar – a few turns of Guinea feather or other long fibered feather pulled down as a throat
10. Front Wing – 2 pheasant rump feathers tied in flat over the top. Wing should extend back almost to the end of the red wing.
