Hook Wet fly 8- 18
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
