NEWS, VIEWS & REVIEWS FROM FLY FISHING SNOWDONIA
This is a simple, effective dry fly pattern that imitates many flies. I tie in a range of sizes from hook size 20 up to 14.
Black thread, black sheet foam, small stiff cock hackle.
Cut a strip of foam 2-3mm wide, depending on hook size. quickly flame the end and squeeze to flatten. Tie in tail (optional) Tie foam onto top of hook with pointed end over the eye. Tie in hackle. Fold foam over the hackle and tie in.
That's all there is to it.
