Hook: Hayabusa Size 6 (long shank), or VMC Special Mer 9146 NI, or Gamakatsu LS-50113F, sizes 10 to 2 (sizes as you like)
Yarn: Black 6/0
Tail: synthetic bass, or for more attraction in stillwater black marabou
Body: here perls in pearl and one in red as the hitpoint
Body Hackle: non
Wing: synthetic bass
Head: black yarn 6/0 or a black conehead
Front hackle: orange or red hot.
After tying the tail I cut the yarn and fix the first perl with a little bit epoxy.
When using marabou instead of the synthetic bass, you have to tie the tail and lay the marabou later as a wing to the head. Or use marabou only for tail and cut the synthetic bass below.
You can change the colours of the perls as you like, maybe a brown shining polystickle as natural? Or some blue perls with one red perl and a white bass as a little herring?
My perls are 4 mm diameter and have a 2 mm boring. When buying some perls you should have some hooks in your pocket
Before using a conehead for this fly try out its weight. The perls bring their own weighting. _________________ Kindest regards, Mirko
