Materials
Hook Wet fly 8- 18
Thread Black
Tail Golden Pheasant Crest
Body Traditional is black seals fur but I have used a mix of seals and antron
Hackle Black Cock palmered
Rib Fine silver tinsel
Head hackle Ginger cock(soft)

Run thread on and go to down to above the barb


Catch in a Crest feather and tie it n the length of the body.


Tie in silver wire on the way back to the tail


Dub on the body


Rough up the body with some Velcro I like how the antron gives a nice scruffy yet thin body.


Catch in a black cock hackle


Palmer it down the body and rib up with tinsel.


Tie in a ginger cock hackle


Take 2-3 turn of hackle dependant on how you want the fly to look. I like this to be a good bushy for stripping during a sedge hatch. Then whip finish and varnish the head. Job done


Hope you enjoy
