    Default Doobry Snatcher

    Due to the Snatcher request a couple of days ago I decided to list one of my favourites. Since I did the article on the snatchers a few years ago in Trout Fisherman Magazine this one along with the Kate version I featured has produced the goods. Repeat orders show how deadly this pattern has become. Variant with glo-brite No 8 butt has also been worth having in your box.

    THREAD: UNI 8/0 RED
    HOOK: KAMAZAN B110 OR FULLING MILL EQUIV, SIZE 10 - 14
    BUTT: GLO-BRITE FLOSS NO 4
    RIB: FINE GOLD WIRE
    BODY: FLAT GOLD TINSEL (HOLO GOLD ALSO EFFECTIVE
    BODY HACKLE: BLACK METZ SADDLE HACKLE
    HEAD HACKLE: FIRE ORANGE HEN BADGER
    CHEEKS: JUNGLE C*CK

    PLACE HOOK IN VICE AND CATCH IN THREAD


    TIE IN FLOSS AND FORM BUTT


    TIE IN WIRE FOR RIB


    TIE IN FLAT GOLD TINSEL FOR BODY


    ADD A DROP OF VARNISH TO BODY THEN WIND GOLD TINSEL IN OVERLAPPING TURNS UP TOWARDS EYE TO FORM BODY


    TIE IN SADDLE HACKLE


    PALMER DOWN BODY IN NO MORE THAN 3-4 TURNS THEN BRING UP TO EYE WIRE RIB IN EQUAL TURNS TO PALMERING


    TIE IN HEN HACKLE


    DO TWO TURNS OF HEAD HACKLE THEN TIE IN JC CHEEKS


    WHIP FINISH AND VARNISH TO COMPLETE FLY


    Cheers

    Really Nice Fly there, I've never fished a snatcher, how would I go about doing so?

    What self respecting trout could refuse such a nice fly.BTW where did you get the FIRE ORANGE HEN BADGER or did you dye it yourself?

    Very nice tying Gerry of one of my favourite patterns.

    Got one of those hen capes off you some time back and it was perfect for them.

    I have notice this on the 3 "snatcher" flies being posted: why is the hackle palmered from eye to bend vs bend to eye???

    This is the traditional way of tying palmered hackles over here flytire, you use the ribbing to tie down the hackle.
    All done
