Dry fly
Difficulty: 
Easy
Instruction: 
  1. Cut some poly yarn into 1 cm pieces.
  2. Cover the hook shank with thread.
  3. Dub the thread with the prepared poly yarn.
  4. Make the dubbed thread come the little bit down the hook bend and back again, 2 mm from the eye. This should make the fly a bit more volumnious to the rear.
  5. Tie in poly yarn as the wing on one side of the hook.
  6. Make the poly yarn come over to the other side of the hook.
  7. Secure the wing
  8. Dub the wing base with poly yarn and form a nice head.
