    Nice flies - if you want a slight variation, try a detached body version. Make the abdomen out of tying silk in the colour of your choice as follows:

    For approx. 1 inch of useable abdomen, take approx. 18 inches of tying silk, double it over, then double it again - this should leave you with what looks like 4 strands of 4.5 inch long tying silk.

    Now furl the thread by twisting the ends in opposite directions until it wraps around itself - once done tie an over hand knot in the 'loose' end to stop it unravelling.

    Tie onto the hook at the thorax using the 'loose' end to tie in with, adjust length to suit by pulling it gently through the silk wrappings and trim off any excess. Complete the fly as above.

    Happy tying,
    Adam

    Default Another variation

    This is another variation that has been successful on rivers for me.

    Peacock Herl Daddie


    HOOK Kamasan B830 #10
    THREAD Brown 6/0
    BODY 4 or 5 Peacock Herls
    RIB Copper Wire
    LEGS Knotted Pheasant Tail
    HACKLE Red Game Cock.


    STEP 1
    Attach the thread and wrap to the hook bend catching in the rib as you go.



    STEP 2
    Tie in the Peacock Herl and wrap the thread to the shoulder. Then varnish the body.



    STEP 3
    Grip the Herls and the wire and twist to form a rope.



    Then wrap forward and tie off to form the body. Separate the Herl and wire and trim the waste Herl before twisting the wire off.




    STEP 4
    Tie in the legs as shown in STEP 4 above.




    STEP 5
    Tie in and wrap the hackle.



    STEP 6
    Form a neat head, whipfinish and varnish for the completed fly.



    All three together.



    All done
