Extended Mayfly Body
In this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate one (of many!) technique for creating extended mayfly bodies using deer hair. This is a great method, and reduces the amount of materials you need for certain patterns, such as the green drake, slate drake (Isonychia), and other mayflies with lengthy bodies/abdomens. When tying flies with this particular method, ensure the body thickness is appropriate to match the natural by either increasing/reducing the size of the needle or selecting a sparser/fuller amount of deer hair.

Tips for Measuring Mayfly Tails
During this brief fly tying tutorial, I explain a few parts of the dry fly hook essential in the measurement of tails when tying. From there, I tie the correct length for mayfly tails (the dun is tied and I explain dimensions for the spinner), while also showing a "cheater" that beginning tyers can use until they perfect their methods.
