Can you post the material list.
thanks for sharing,
Thanks Ben (and the rest of you guys)
The hook is an older Mustad, I think size#4 is pretty accurate.
Tail: any irridescent turkey flats tied long, followed by tippets tied in shorter
Butt: 4-5 turns of peacock herl
1st body section: Long p-cock herl that has been stripped (I use a pencil eraser, and soaked it in water for a few minutes)...followed by a ribbing of Amber wire(UTC, brassie size).
2nd body section: P-Cock Herl ice dubbing ribbed with dull orange kevlar thread that has been twisted
Underwing: Mixed stands of the tail material,again with the tippets tied shorter(not evident in photo)
Throat: a few turns of dull orange hackle
Wing: Blue and Gold Macaw coverts or tail feathers. I actually prefer the coverts at this size.
This fly is like a 1950's Harley...built to last
A side note (especially for us cold climate people). The drying effect of certain heating systems can really alter the behavior of your materials. Be prepared for some changes
