Aaron's Comments and Tying Instructions

The fly is called Marty's Dace because I got it from my friend Marty. He had no name for it.

  1. Insert hook in vise.
  2. Attach thread at eye and wind back several turns (1/8- 1/4")
  3. Hold Bodi-Braid along the side of the hook and wind thread back to bend of hook.
  4. Run thread back to the point where you started to wind on the braid.
  5. Wrap braid forward in touching turns (not overlapping) to tie off point.
  6. Attach wing - white, black and then brown in ascending order.
  7. Finish head, cement and put on or paint on eyes.
