North Forker 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.

Developed by Cliff Adams on Oregon's Willamette River (actually, the North Fork of the Middle Fork; guess that's where the name came from). Interesting combination of a hackled Comparadun-style wing. Supposedly a killer (not literally, I hope) cutt fly in it's day.


hook - Dai Riki 320 #12
thread - Danville 6/0 black
tail - hackle fibers red
body - poly yarn yellow
rib - hackle (fibers stripped off one side and trimmed to 1/8" on the other) coachman brown
wing - deer hair
hackle - ginger


Mash down barb, start thread at 75% mark

Image


clean, stack, measure (shank length) a clump of deer hair; tie in, trim butts at angle

Image

Image

Image


wrap thread to point above barb, create a thread bump; stack, measure (shank length) a clump of hackle fibers, tie in to junction with wing butts and smooth with thread

Image

Image


tie in poly yarn

Image


prep hackle for rib and tie in

Image

Image


take a wrap of poly yarn behind rib, then wrap forward; tie off

Image


brush a little Sally on the body, then wrap rib forward and tie off

Image


move thread in front of wing, pull it back and set angle with thread dam

Image

Image


tie in hackle

Image


wrap hackle behind and in front of wing, tie off, trim, half hitch x 2, SHHAN (rib looked a bit long, so I trimmed it up)

Everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home
