Clipped Hackle Body (Jean Paul Pequegnot) This is a clipped body wet fly from around 1936/37.
The original pattern has a reddish brown hackle for the tail, body and collar.
Pequegnot did this pattern a la Gris a Corps Jaune with yellow silk and blue dun hackle for the tail and collar. He suggests for the body to use a lesser feather but for the collar to use the best you have.

This concept for forming the body and collar can be done in a multitude of colors for thread and hackls. The fly can also be tied more heavily hackled on a lighter hook as a dry fly. In fact, there are several areas in Japan where that was the typical type of kebari or fly they tied. The examples seem to much more surface oriented patters as the collars are heavily hackled. - see Kebari from Okushinano Akiyamago area.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
