    Default Kate Mclaren

    Kate Mc Laren


    Materials
    Hook Wet fly 8- 18
    Thread Black
    Tail Golden Pheasant Crest
    Body Traditional is black seals fur but I have used a mix of seals and antron
    Hackle Black Cock palmered
    Rib Silver oval
    Head hackle Brown Hen

    Run thread on and go to down to above the barb


    Catch in a Crest feather and tie it n the length of the body.


    Tie in silver oval on the way back to the tail


    Dub on the body


    Rough up the body with some Velcro I like how the antron gives a nice scruffy yet thin body.


    Catch in a black cock hackle


    Palmer it down the body and rib up with oval tinsel.


    Tie in a brown hen hackle


    Take 2-3 turn of hackle dependant on how you want the fly to look. I like this to be a good bushy for stripping during a sedge hatch. Then whip finish and varnish the head. Job done


    Hope you enjoy

    Al, it should be hen for the head hackle, and oval silver (or I'd let you off with wire) for the rib... otherwise your post should have been entitled 'Kate McLaren Variant'

    Right then will go and fix it after I get my technology homework, 3 a3 pages of concept sketch for a project I don't even make? My first words when the teacher set it, What the Hell.
