    Default One Strip Pony SBS

    Love Convertibles but with the soaring cost of floatant, I'm looking for alternate ways to keep them on top. A bit more foam should do it; using a single strip simplifies the process, not that this is a complicated fly. Change colors to suit your needs.

    hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
    thread - UTC 140 burnt orange
    tails - moose body hair
    body - 1mm foam orange
    wing - Congo Hair white
    legs - medium rubber brown
    hackle - brown/grizzly

    Part 1

    mash barb, attach the thread and wrap back to point above barb

    clean/stack a clump of moose hair, measure for length (little less than hook shank) and tie in

    trim butts, smooth with thread wraps

    take a wrap behind/under the tail, come around, up and over to help lock/tilt

    take a strip of foam (hook gap width) and cut it in half lengthwise for about 2"
