Title: Red Ass Brassie
Post by: Devinsdad on June 11, 2006, 18:52:46 PM
Hook-  any curved shank hook size 10 thru 18
bead head to match hook size
thread- black
body- red ultrwire
thorax- peacock herl
hackle- hungarian partridge neck

tips-
1- use your dubbing needle to press the wire back against itself to have a smooth body wrap with no gaps.
2- strip one side of the partridge hackle and tie in by the tip... make the hackle sparse (2-3 wraps) for slow water or thicker (4-5 wraps) for fast water conditions
