Tying Instructions

1.  Tie in the yellow deerhair (bucktail) at rear of shank, then follow with yellow super hair wrapping around the hook shank and extending back as a V, to help aid in supporting the other materials.

2.  Tie in other listed materials with the flashabou, krystal flash and polarflash materials in the center around hook shank. The sides of the body consist of the listed bucktail and hackles. These are tied to either side to maintain a baitfish profile and entrap the flash material between them. All materials are tied with equal amounts on either side of the hook shank, use small amounts to minimize bulk and weight. The yak and blue grizzly hackles are tied on the top center of the shank, so that they flow down the middle of the fly.

3.  As you tie in materials work your way up the hook shank to build the profile for the head. Tie in a clump of herl in the center top of the shank add a peacock sword to either side curved inward.

4.  Tie in a few strands of red Flashabou for the throat.

5.  Tie in yellow or green marabou cheeks, one per side.

6.  Cement or epoxy the prizmatic eyes to the marabou.

7.  Build up smooth thread head, color upper and lower sections with blue and green markers. Coat the thread with epoxy or multiple coats of high gloss head cement.

The fly is tied at the bend of the shank, materials are placed on the sides and top allowing the hook point to be open. All deer hair and flash material should be used in very small bunches.

A Special Thanks to Dave Setoon for teaching and providing fly tying lessons and for being patient with me.
