Quigley Sparkle Flag SBS

kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Another hackle stacker variation; mayfly emerger this time around. Tied here in PMD colors; change to suit the hatch. The integrated CH post/wing worked well, but give yourself enough room at the head (I crowded this one a little) as it's a bit bulky.

hook - Dai Riki 125 #16
thread - UTC 70 hopper yellow
shuck - Congo Hair brown
abdomen - tying thread
hackle post/wing - Congo Hair cream
thorax - dubbing pale yellow
hackle - ginger

mash barb; tie in shuck and wrap back to bend

Image


build a slender body up to hook point

Image


tie in CH wing/post; fold back

Image

Image


tie in hackle (shiny side out/cup side up), post up (thorax length)

Image

Image


sanity check (measure twice/cut once); adjust, if needed

Image


wrap hackle down the post; tie off at base and trim tip

Image

Image


dub thread/dub thorax

Image

Image


stroke hackle fibers back

Image

Image


pull hackle/post over thorax; tie down

Image


pull post back and build up thread dam

Image

Image


trim post, find some picky fish

Image

Image


thread abdomen is nice and simple but feel free to play around - pheasant tail, biot, Krystal Flash, etc
Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
RIP Walter
