Pretty simple, which works for me. Start the thread
and wind to the rear and tie in one Chickabou hackle
tip. Tie in two strands of burlap and while wrapping
forward, twist. Tie in hackles and wrap to taste.
Finish as usual.
Hook: Mustad 9049.
Thread/Head: Black 8/0.
Tail: Sand colored Chickabou tips.
Body: Two strands of burlap.
Hackle: Sand colored grizzly saddle hackle.

I'm a native of Central Washington who spent 28 yrs in the
Seattle Area before getting the opportunity to return to my
roots, Moses Lake, Washington, in 1996. Since leaving the
salmon and steelhead behind my focus has been on the trout
of Rocky Ford Creek and the bass and bluegill of the Columbia
I have been happily married to Margaret, the most tolerant
woman I know, for 29 years. We have two fine young sons, 24
and 19 in Shane and Eric.
I am partial to FAOL fish-ins and trips to Montana to fish
with my favorite fishing partner, my younger brother Mike.
I look forward to spending more time with my family and
my favorite pasttime, flyfishing come October, 2003, when
I will retire from the Post Office with 35 years of service.
