  • Hook: Dry Fly Hook Size 18

  • Thread: Olive Uni-Thread Size 8/0

  • Hackle: Blue Dun Dry-Fly Hackle (Size 18)

  • Tail: Blue Dun Dry-Fly Hackle Fibers

  • Body: Olive Super Fine Dubbing

  • Wings: Blue Dun Dry-Fly Hackle Tips

Step 1. Place your hook in the vice and secure tightly in place.

Step 2. Attach the thread to the hook shank at the 3/4 mark on the shank.

Step 3. Select and align the tips of 12-15 blue dun dry-fly hackle fibers. Tie these fibers onto the hook shank at the point above the barb. They should be about one-and-a-half times the length of the hook gap.

Step 4. Select and align two blue dun dry-fly hackle tips so that they flare away from one another when held back to back. The wings, when finished, should be approximately the length of the hook shank.

Step 5. Strip all the hackle barbs off of the feathers leaving just the tips. Tie these tips down to the hook extending over the hook eye at the 3/4 mark on the shank.


Step 6. Stand the wings upright and place several thread wraps in front of the base to keep them in place. 

Step 7. Advance the thread back to the rear end of the shank and pinch dub your thread very lightly with the super fine dubbing. Build a small tapered body up the hook shank, stopping just behind the wings.

Step 8. Strip the bottom section from a blue dun dry-fly hackle, leaving the stalk exposed, and tie this just behind the wings.

Step 9. Advance the blue dun dry-fly hackle up the body of the fly, taking four to five turns of hackle behind the wings and three turns in front of the wings.

Step 10. Build a small neat head for the fly, whip finish the thread and cement.
