This is a great fly to tie, and a fantastic fly to fish. The buggier you tie it, the merrier the result. I tie the body several different ways. If I want a buggy profile, I go for Hare dubbing. Here I have opted for standard FlyRite dub, that floats well and has colors that suits my waters.
The Rib here is French tinsel, but its possible to leave it out altogether or use pearl tinsel or an equivalent. Tailing options is really up to you and your choice. Make an Antron shuck, and you’ll have a special Sparkle Dun or use Fibettes to creates split tales. Here is a standard olive grizzly cock hackle.
The wing is a chapter of its own. Be careful to select two good CdC’s – one natural brown/gray and one dyed olive (colors in this photo lie). Use CdC Magic Tool and spin the fibres on the thread. Be careful to stroke back as you wind the wing towards the eye.
