|Hook:||(T) 2457 or (M) 3906|
|Wing:||Mallard Wing Quill|
|Thorax:||2/3 Muskrat, 1/3 Charcoal Ligas Blend|
Notes on tying:
1. Holding ultrachenille between your thumb and index finger lightly singe the end of tail to produce the desired taper with a match or butane lighter.
2. Tie in ultachenille 1/3 back from the eye of the hook and wrap it securely.
3. Tie in mallard wing quill pointing down. Trim off excess quill.
4. Dub the thorax region with 2/3 muskrat and 1/3 charcoal Ligas blend.
5. Whip finish.
6. Tease out hair for legs.
This is a pattern Mike Jacobs demonstrated in his fly tying class. It is also listed in Fly Fisherman March 1992. Fish it up stream and let it drift back.
