Pattern

Hook #14 Scud hook
Thread Brown
Body 4-5 PT fibers dyed yellow
Rib Tying thread
Thorax Peacock dubbing
Hackle Dark brown hen variant

After tying in pt fibers for the body leave tying thread at back of fly. Wrap pt fibers up the body in the opposite direction than you typically would, carefully hold pt fibers with one hand at tie off point while you counterwrap thread up the body towards the tie off point. Secure body, trim pt fibers, dub thorax and add hackle as you would any other fly. Quick(simple and easy to really crank em out) and Dirty(a real fish killer)

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.

Pastor explains icons to my son: you know like the fish symbol on the back of cars.

My son: My dad has two fish on his car and they're both trout!

That's a good looking fly Discomidge. Thanks for sharing.
