A spent spinner is a spent spinner. Mostly I tie mine with tied up hackle. On this one I have used rabbit foot from Jon Strand’s and high quality Arctic Rabbit line. Jon was also the guy suggesting using rabbit foot as wing material to increase visibility in low light conditions.
It is a straight forward tie. Start with the wing – about a shank length of rabbit hair. Tie it in and split the bundle in two equal parts – separate it with the figure eight turn. Next are the tails. You can use any tailing material, but I love using natural badger. Makes the fly come alive.
The body of the fly is simply turkey biot, and the thorax is a mix of burnt orange (10%) and black (90%) hare
