    Default The Snip [Another hackled wet (no name)]

    “Second verse, same as the first………”


    Another one I like. I have to say, …….. it’s not really very far from the last one I posted . However I hope it’s of use to someone.


    I’ve used the dubbing spinner again ( and again follow Scotfly’s comprehensive thread - http://www.flyforums.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2296 -serves the subject well ) only applying the dubbing to both sides of the thread. I like this one a bit on the chubby side.



    Dressing


    Hook : Partridge SLD, TMC 902BL or similar #14-16
    Thread: Uni-thread 8/0 red
    Body : SLF Finesse Masterclass Blend shade 8 “Ephemerella”
    Hackle: Blotched feather from outside of Snipe wing





    Method

    1. Tie in thread, and mount the hackle by the tip.




    2. Trim waste/Take thread to rear,



    3 Catch in dubbing loop, take thread just forward of hackle




    4. Wax both sides of loop - I’ve used BT’s dubbing wax , and apply dubbing to both strands (or insert a thin mat of dubbing between)






    5. Spin up the looped cord

    6. Wind the spun cord up, in butting turns. (if you find the spun body slightly irregular, a very light scrub with a Velcro pad may resolve it for you). to the eye side of the hackle stalk. Tie off with a few turns of thread.



    7. Sweep back the hackle fibres, then wind them on three to four turns,or according to taste.Whip finish.



    Job done.











    Cheers,

    Another nice one .D.
    In the absence of a proper name I've called it the Snip Ephemerella on the list, if you want something else let me and I'll change it.
    All done

    Cheers Scotfly,

    You could just cut it down to "The Snip" if you want!

    Actually, The Snip sounds OK.

    What do you think?

    OOps I missed out an "e" it should have read Snipe Ephemerella
    I'll change it to the snip though.

    Nice fly. Given the above, why not call it the Typo!

    Nicely tied wee spider. Just goes to show how one can create something different from the norm with a bit of this & a bit of that.
    Not so sure about the names mentioned though.
