Creator of this trout fly: Edward Hewitt
Tier of this trout fly: Allan Podell
Country of origin for this trout fly: Catskills, USA
This trout fly is designed to be fished on Rivers & Streams
- Hook : 16.
- Thread : Unwaxed.
- Hackle : 3 ginger or any combination of colour.Barbs should be stiff and as large, 2 and more inches diameter when wound, as you can get.
The key to tying this pattern is in the technique.
The rear hackle is tied with the bright side to the rear.
The front hackle is bright side forward and the middle can face either way.
The hackles are then pressed together so that the tips come to a point above and below the shank.
