|Legs:||Palmered Saddle Hackle|
Notes on tying:
1. Select two goose biot and tie them in so they face away from each other.
2. Secure copper wire for the rib and saddle hackle.
3. Wrap the body with peacock herl.
4. Palmer the body with the saddle hackle.
5. Wrap the rib forward through the body and hackle.
6 Taper the head and whip finish.
7. Trim the palmered hackle to a cone shape that is longer in front. The front hackle should be left untrimed.
This is a pattern listed in The Fly Tyers Nymph Manual by Randall Kaufmann. It is a good general nymph pattern that imitates many underwater organisms including stoneflies and hellgramites.
