Thorax Dun - Marinaro Style

The Thorax Dun a la Vincent Marinaro from “The Modern Dry Fly Code”
This is a fly designed for selective trout that have keyed onto duns. The wings and their silhouette on the surface are the main focus. The X pattern of the hackle is to ensure the wings and the fly ride level on the water.
I deviated from the book method in two ways. First, I used burnt wings and second I tied the tail in using a different method.
The tail tying method is from Eric Austin. Here is a link to that method.

Here is his video on the pattern.

Here are other videos of the pattern better than mine.

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.
