    Default 88 Streamer SBS




    Saw this on Hans' Danica site, tied by Alberto Jimeno; always thought it was a cool looking fly. Haven't fished one, but it looks like it might work.




    hook - Mustad 9671 #8
    thread - UTC 140 black
    abdomen - Ultra wire medium red
    thorax - floss green
    wing - mallard dyed wooduck
    hackle - grizzly


    Part 1



    mash barb and start thread at 60% mark





    tie in wire on top of hook and wrap back to point right above the barb





    wrap wire forward





    tie down, helicopter the wire 'till it breaks and wrap smooth





    tie in floss





    wrap forward, back and forward, trying to keep it smooth; it could definitely be smoother still, but I was tying this one in my basement on top of the washing machine (don't ask); tie off floss





    pull fibers off mallard feather, trying to keep tips even





    measure wing for for length (let it extend hook gap distance past the butt)





    and tie in
