Tying instructions

  1. Cut some poly yarn into 1 cm pieces.
  2. Cover the hook shank with thread. Go a little bit down the hook bend.
  3. Make the thread come back again, so it hangs app. over the hook point.
  4. Dub the thread with the prepared poly yarn.
  5. Wind the dubbed thread to a little bit down the hook bend and back again, ending about an eye width from the eye. This should make the fly a bit more volumnious to the rear.
  6. Tie in poly yarn as the wing on one side of the hook.
  7. Bend the poly yarn over to the other side of the hook.
  8. Secure the wings
  9. Dub the wing base with poly yarn and form a nice head.
  10. Tease and trim the body to form "legs" and trim the wings.
