Those black wings really stand out on those fall, drizzly, flat-light days when the baetis are pouring off the water.


hook - Dai Riki 320 #18
thread - Uni 8/0 olive dun
shuch - Z-lon amber
tail - mallard (dyed woodduck)
Abdomen - biot olive brown
wing case - 1mm foam grey
thorax - dubbing olive
wing - Congo Hair black


Mash down barb, start thread

Image


tie in a hank of Congo Hair and figure-8 it; twist ends together to keep it out of the way

Image

Image


tie in shuck, wrap back to bend; trim (gap width)

Image

Image


tie in a few mallard flank fibers (shank length)

Image


moisten biot and tie in (notch side down for ribbed effect, up for smooth; your choice); wrap forward, tie off and trim

Image

Image


tie in foam strip (gap width)

Image


dub thread, dub thorax

Image

Image


pull foam forward, tie off, trim; half hitch x 2, SHHAN

Image

Image


trim wings (shank length), check the seams on your rain gear and pray for crummy weather
