The South Branch Chub was originated by Bob Jacklin while he was in
highschool in New Jersey. His thrust was for a fly to use in small streams
and ponds for native brook trout, particularly in the South Branch of the
Raritan. He now claims that it is good not only in the east, but also out
Tying instructions (for my variation):
1. Attach thread at eye and wrap back a couple of eye lengths.
2. At this point tie on the gold Bodi-Braid and run thread to bend and then
back up to this point.
3. Wrap Bodi-Braid up to wating thrad and clip excess.
4. Tie in a sparse amount of White Monga Ringtail for the base of the wing.
5. Over the white hair tie in an equal amount of Black Monga Ringtail.
6. The top of the wing is the most important part of the fly. Drape a
small teal flank feather to form the back of the fly. If using Jungle
Cock, tie them on at this time.
7. Cement the head and apply a touch of dubbing wax to the wing to groom
and give it a nice sparse look.
8. Apply yellow eye with black pupil and cement when dry.
