    Default Berry's Hedgehog Salmonfly (variation) SBS



    Brian Berry's (Teton Valley Lodge) bullethead modification of Nick Nicklas' Sunken Stone, which is a variation of the Mikulak Sedge, which may have been a modification of the original Hegdehog fly, and so on, and so on......

    tail - 2mm foam black
    body - dubbing rusty orange/brown
    wings - deer hair high-tie style
    legs - rubber brown

    Part 1

    mash down barb and attach thread at head (gap width)




    clean, stack and measure (approx 1/2 shank length) a healthy clump of deer hair




    two soft loops right behind the hook eye; pull firmly and let it spin, trim butts








    wrap back to point above barb, taper end of foam (approx gap width), tie in






    brush shank with Super Glue, tie down foam, fold tag end over to create egg sac, tie down and smooth with thread wraps
