A.C.M.E Co. FLY
In an email to A.C.M.E Co. from Wile E. Coyote :
Subject: I'm done!!!!
To Whom it may concern:
After years of unsuccessful attempts at catching the Road Runner, with and without the help of your clever yet faulty products, I have chosen to give on up this fool hearted act and I have taken up the more relaxing art and past time of Fly-fishing and Fly tying. Thus I will no longer be requiring any further catalogs of your products. Please remove me from your mailing lists both E-mail and US Postal.
Sincerely Wile E. Coyote
In Response the C.E.O of A.C.M.E scrambled his researchers and they responded with this email :
Subject: RE:I'm Done!!!!
Dear Mr. Coyote
We are sorry for your lack of faith in our products. As well as your inability to catch your prey, we insure you that our products had nothing to do with your failure. We do wish to applaud you in your new venture with Fly fishing and tying. Please accept this new addition to our new Fly fishing line of products as a sample of the many new products we are excited to offer you.
Sincerely A.C.M.E Co
- One Gaelic suprime streamer hook 1/0 70293x (or what size looks right for your bomb)
- Thread black or to match the bomb
- One toy bomb of some kind this is of a mortar
- Red and green yarn
- Large wet fly feather very webby and sorry looking, preferably a dark colour
- Decent Dry fly hackle sized 3 times smaller than the wet fly hackle after its tied on
- Brown/copper ice dub
1. With hook securely clamped in the vice lay a tight thread base within three or four eye lengths of bare hook near eye.
2. Set bomb so its tail is hanging over the bend of hook and tie on with 10 or 12 tight wraps then wrap around the bottom most part of the bomb and secure.
3. Take your copper Ice dub and your black or brown bug dub and blend together and dub onto the hook and bomb a 1/4th bomb body length thick segment of on the back of the hook. (I used the Ropedub technique for this fly.)
4. Bring the thread forward 1/4th on the hook and tie in your thick webby feather. Super glue the bomb the hook only at the two spots where the thread wraps the hook.
5. Wrap hackle forward as a wet fly another 1/4th and tie off.
6. Bring the thread 1/2 the way forward on the bomb and hook to make a collar then bring thread forward on the hook locking it in place.
7. Take the Red and green yarn and tie in with a length of each hanging down the same size or longer then the hackle. Then granny weave to the start of the thread and tie off.
8. Select a barred or colored dry fly hackle that contrasts agents the bomb and the wet fly hackle. Tie in end first and wind on over the where you tied off the weave, wind forward and tie off. Whip finish add head cement and you're done.
