This is my first fly tying post I’m still working on it the pictures are a little blurry.
Some good web sites to visit are:
1. Daiichi curved size 12 hook,
2. Red 70 Dener thread,
3. Peacock herl,
4. Pheasant feathers,
5. Head cement,
Start thread in middle of hook wrap to bend then wrap to two eye lengths from hooks eye,
Tie in peacock herl,
Wrap peacock herl around hook shank to create a thick collar,
Make the tip of the pheasant feather so it looks like this,
Tie in pheasant feather and wrap around hook shank so it the hackle faces forward,
Whip finish and head cement,
I present my fly to the fish by casting upstream and letting it drift through all the eddies, and riffles.
