    Default Sloan's Paralyzer SBS

    Pretty much a parachute Stimulator; stonefly, caddis, hopper, attractor, whatever. Tied here as a Yellow Sally; the foam butt is my contribution (you're welcome).

    hook - Dai Riki 280 #14
    thread - Uni 8/0 Lt. Cahill
    butt - 2mm foam red
    shuck/legs/tail(?) - Krystal Flash pearl
    rib - tying thread
    abdomen - dubbing yellow
    body hackle - grizzly
    wing - bleached elk
    thorax - dubbing yellow
    post - Congo Hair white
    hackle - grizzly

    Part 1

    mash barb and attach thread at 66% mark; leave the tag end long for the rib

    original pattern called for calf body post, tied in at start; calf body leaves a pretty big bump which caused me problems later on and the post also interfered with later tying steps (especially the wing), so I scrapped that sequence and added the post after the elk wing was tied in

    tie in a 2mm x 2mm strip of foam and wrap back to point above the barb; fold foam leaving an extended butt

    tie in KF; fold back on either side of foam

    dub thread; dub body

    tie in hackle; original pattern calls for hackle to be trimmed short, I just undersize by 2 (this is hackle for an #18 hook)

    wrap hackle back to bend (I like it pretty dense); capture hackle with tag end of thread and rib through hackle to front of abdomen; tie off/trim rib

    trim hackle on top short
