Fly Fishing – Fly Patterns
Hook: 6-2 Streamer Thread: 6/0 Hot Orange Tail: Rabbit Strip, should be about 1/2 length of body. Body: Mylar Wrap Wing: Rabbit Strip Note: Can be tied in orange, pink, or red.
- Tie in rabbit strip at bend of hook. For the tail you do not have to tie it in by the skin. Tie the rabbit in just after the skin, then trim.
- Tie in mylar wrap and wrap it forward for body.
- Tie in rabbit strip for wing. The tips should extend to the end of the tail. Since the wing is longer, you will need to tie the rabbit strip in by the skin.
- Trim excess, form a nicely shaped head with thread, whip finish, and head cement.
