The Weekly Fly

Randy Says:

I have been tying flies since my wife taught me to tie 38 years ago. I have always been fascinated with woven patterns, in particular those originated by George Grant and Franz Pott.

  • Hook: Size 8 Daiichi 1750
  • Thread: Brown 6/0 Uni-thread
  • Body: Tan or brown horse mane woven with 3 strands of orange embroidery floss. (Emboidery floss has six strands. Separate out three of them for weaving.) When woven in, the floss forms a stripe on the top of the hook shank.
  • Wing: Two clumps of Elk mane tied in on the sides like pontoons, angled slightly down.
  • Head: Brown 6/0 Uni-thread
  • Hackle: High-quality dry brown rooster neck or saddle, wound and clipped on bottom. (The bottom is actually the top of the hook shank because this is an inverted pattern made to skate with the hook point facing up.)
