Our Man From Canada


Rick Zieger - June 02, 2014

This was a fly in "Hatches" magazine. The author uses it for trout. I have done well on panfish with it.


Step 1: Place bead head on hook and tie in tail.

Step 2: Wrap dubbing about ½ way up hook shank.

Step 3: Attach wire to wrap around shank under thorax.

Step 4: Wrap thread over peacock from bead head back to where abdomen is.

Step 5: Attach legs on each side.

Step 6: I wrap the front legs with thread forward up the hook a short distance. This helps the legs pointy forward.

Step 7: Dub the thorax over the thread wraps over the legs and then in front of the legs.

Step 8: Pull the wing case forward and tie off.   This is another color.
