    Default Duffer's Delight

    This one was working on the Avon this week.
    Hook: TMC 200R #12
    Thread: Gordon Griffiths 8/0
    Tail: 3 black deer hairs
    Rib: Pearl
    Wing: White calf tail
    Hackle: Cree

    Start thread off and run half way down the hook, come back to wing position and tie in a small pinch of calf tail.


    Cut and taper butts.


    Build a thread bump to raise wing.


    Run thread to barb and tie in tail.


    Tie in rib.


    Take a good pinch of Hare's mask from the cheeks, you want the light tan stuff.


    Split thread and insert dubbing.


    Spin to make a spiky dubbing rope.


    Wind body to wing and rib.


    Tie in hackle and put 3 turns before the wing and 2 turns after, whip finish.

    It's a new one, the old one had bits of the Liffey over the sensor.

    Shame I only tied two of them and they were both given as offerings to the tree gods.

    Can you remember which trees, I'll have a look when I'm back out on Wednesday or Thursday

    Don't forget you're address for that thing I promised you.

    Dubbing with a hares mask looks like its neat and tidy.

    I must get one, any recomendations on where to buy one?

    Trout, any shop that stocks fly tying materials will have them in.

    Just had a message from my chief tester, the pattern is still working well.
