Doug Swisher's Madam X (Color: Royal)

See video

In this fly tying tutorial, I demonstrate the steps required for Doug Swisher's Madam X. This version, the "Royal," is based on the colors/materials in the Royal Coachman and Wulff (red and peacock, respectively). This is a great attractor pattern, incorporating a deer hair wing tied bullethead style, plus great rubber legs to create vibrations in the water. This is a pattern to use in a variety of situations, most notably as an attractor in faster water; the bonus is that it's a really fun fly to tie!

Featured in this tutorial are the N202 Terrestrial/Hopper hooks from Allen Fly Fishing; these are excellent hooks that match this pattern perfectly. Find the hooks at the following link:
