Sureshot 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 Wulff variation; possibly originated in Colorado. Kinda played around with the sequence to tie the body - instructions I saw had just peacock wrapped, then ribbed with floss; I wanted a more RW look so I wrapped/overlapped herl/Uni-stretch. Can't imagine it makes a bit of difference; tie it however you like.


hook - Mustad 94840 #12
thread - Uni 8/0 camel
tail - calftail
body - peacock herl/Uni-stretch yellow
wing - calftail
hackle - brown


Mash down barb, start thread at 75% mark

Image


clean, stack, clean, stack, clean, stack, measure (hook length) a clump of calftail; tie in (lean on it - I popped the thread twice but the wing's not going anywhere), trim at an angle, cover with thread and a bit of Sally

Image

Image


clean, stack, measure (shank length) a smaller clump of calftail; tie in, wrap forward to junction with wing butts, trim and smooth with thread (and a little more Sally)

Image

Image

Image


pull wing up, set angle with thread dam

Image


divide and conquer

Image

Image


post and set with locking wrap

Image

Image


repeat

Image

Image


set dihedral, brush base with Sally

Image


tie in rib

Image


tie in peacock

Image


twist peacock around tying thread

Image


take a wrap of peacock, then Uni-stretch; repeat up the body to 60% mark; tie it all off and trim

Image

Image


tie in hackle

Image


wrap, tie off, trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN one more time
