Tails - Blue dun, Honey Dun, Brassy Dun, Ginger (depicted)
Tip – Yellow thread
* Body - A dubbing mixture with a very faint light red color
consisting of wool from the scrotum of a ram, crème-colored unborn seal’s fur
and the same dyed red as well as yellow and a little wool from a lemon-colored
Hackle - Blue dun, Honey Dun, Brassy Dun, Ginger (depicted)
* Obviously, the body dubbing mentioned above wasn’t used to
tie this fly. I merely hand mixed red, cream, burnt orange wool with a little
yellow rabbit fur to achieve the pinkish colored dubbing.
The urine stained wool from the scrotum of a ram was
definitely not used. What in the hell was the originator thinking
when he blended those materials?
Miss Pinky Hook - Curved style Body*- Pink floss with clear vinyl “D” rib over the top. Palmered with white ostrich herl. To add durability to the fly, use a dubbing loop on the ostrich. Hackle - Hungarian partridge Head - Peacock herl * I used clear flat tinsel in lieu of "D" rib and applied a stripe of uv resin on top of the body to secure the ostrich herl
Hackle - Brown or dark ginger fronted with wood duck. The WD is not wound like the hackle, it is tyed on first with the tips pointing forward, the rest of the fly is tied, tail, body and hackle, then after tying off the hackle the wood duck is pulled back, the thread wound through to the eye, and the wood duck gets worked back with a thread dam in front of it, forcing it back towards the hackle.
