Pattern Dressings

  • Hook : Size 12 - 14.
  • Thread : 8/0 Black Uni.
  • Tail : Pheasant tail fibres.
  • Underbody : Lead wire (optional).
  • Body : Hessian string dubbing (Type used by gardeners).
  • Thorax : Hessian string dubbing.
  • Rib : Fine copper wire.
  • Wing Case : Pheasant tail fibres.

Create the hessian string dubbing by brushing out with a wire brush. Although very coarse it spins very tight if used in a dubbing whirl. Varnish the wing case when the fly is complete.
