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

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

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'

A nice 'sparse' looking pattern that un!! The ones I used to use on 'Loch of the lowes' were a tad heavier.. a brilliant pattern!!
